I have recently been experimenting with Google+ and the Hangout feature where up to 10 people can use their webcam and microphone to live chat. So far I have held several of these including one with Curt Moreno aka Kung Fu Drafter where I was even able to joke around with wearing a cowboy hat. Last week I asked for people to join a Hangout through Twitter and hung out with Jim LaPier an AutoCAD for Mac user in Baltimore.
I am thinking of setting up an a series of Hangouts with people a few times a month to discuss technology, Autodesk, Autodesk products, and what's going on out in your part of the world and building some customer councils for Autodesk Labs.
There is nothing like a real discussion seeing and hearing multiple people just as if we were sitting in a casual lounge somewhere.
What do you think?
