Google+ Hangouts Extras Make this a Serious Collaborative Resource..Rivaling Paid Web Conferencing Services

Google has done it again with the addition of new Google Hangouts Extras in the new Google+ social networking environment. New additions of powerful capabilities like actual real time collaboration using Google Docs, now makes Google Hangouts+ a serious collaborative resource that now rivals fee-based web conferencing services like WebEx, GoToMeeting, and iLinc that you have to pay a whole lot a bucks for... and Google Hangouts is absolutely even the smallest micro-business can afford to get into the game. See this video and look at just some of the new capabilities:
  • 10-seat video conferencing with real-time global conversation and no minute-by-minute costs
  • Document collaboration using Google Docs, Presentations, Spreadsheets to do powerful work
  • Desktop sharing - This could be a PowerPoint slide show used to share application screens
  • Whiteboard features - A great way to globally brainstorm using graphics, text, symbols and images with folks across the region ...or across the world
  • "View-podding" -  This is my favorite and what we are doing front-running work A pod of people can view a YouTube video together and talk about it together...This can be awesomely powerful...if the community-authored web television is powerful. This can be powerful tool for transforming entire communities and for revitalizing local economies. "

    A technical note: Only a few years ago, accessing this kind of capability costed more than $10,000 for licensed use, and it wasn't as good or as convenient to access as it is today. The same can be said of today's low-cost almost no cost web television technology. 
Do some of these ideas help? I continue to be amazed by folks set in their ways and not electing to even try newer technology that has the potential of improving their situation...especially during these challenging economic times... and especially when this new technology is free.  What are they waiting for?
