Our second TidBITS Presents event on 1 August 2012 was once again a success, with over 200 TidBITS members and owners of “Take Control of Upgrading to Mountain Lion” and “Take Control of Using Mountain Lion” joining us live via Google Hangouts On Air. Joe and Matt shared key details from their books and answered numerous questions from the audience for over 2 hours.
Although we limited participation in the live event to TidBITS members and people who had purchased Joe’s and Matt’s ebooks as a way of thanking them for their support, the recorded version is available to everyone via the TidBITS Presents page or YouTube, where over 1300 more people have watched already.
We were doubly disappointed on the iOS front this time, since an update to the Google+ iOS app promised Hangout compatibility, but it turned out that said compatibility didn’t extend to the public Hangouts On Air. And then the trick we figured out for watching the live YouTube stream in Safari on iOS worked during our dry run but simply wasn’t available during the actual presentation. We’ll keep investigating what’s involved with iOS. Nevertheless, you can watch the YouTube version via iOS now, or stream it to your big screen connected to an Apple TV.
Please do leave us comments (at the bottom of this article, in the Google+ post, or on YouTube) about the presentation, in terms of content, presentation style, length, technical experience, and so on. We’re talking about doing more live online events, and we’re curious about what you might like to see from us.
Thanks for watching, and we hope you find the content useful!
