Slugger’s Digital lunch (2), on the eve of the London Olympics…

So at 1pm (BST) we’ll be ‘broadcasting live’ via YouTube (and here) our second Slugger’s Digital Lunch…  Last week, we had Lee Reynolds of the DUP (you can pick up the YouTube here).  I hope we will have even more voices this week.

To participate, you must be on Google Plus. That may take a little of time and working out, but if you already use Skype you’ll have most of the hardware you need to make Google Plus work for you.

All you need to do then is to register with Google (or use your existing Gmail or YouTube account), and then download the software to make the Hangout service work. I’ll post the correct URL for joining us as well as the YouTube feed here.

You can follow the live feed from Slugger or in the feed at my YouTube page on most mobile devices, but you’ll really need to be working from a pc or laptop if you want to participate in this lunchtime discussion.

If you are ‘just watching’, I’d advise posting your comments/questions directly to the live comments feed at YouTube (which will appear once we’re live), since I think we can set it up to read those inside the Hangout.

Oh, and if you do come along don’t forget to bring your lunch. I won’t have anyone suggesting that Slugger made them forgo their comestibles over lunch.

In the meantime, let rip about what you think we ought to be talking about before we go live at 1pm BST…
