For those that don’t know a Google+ hangout is a multi tenanted video conference via the web where information and video can be shared, verbal and IM chat can happen etc. A good explanation of google hangouts is :-
Obama has done a hangout as have many other famous people including UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon which is here.
The Guardian is having a hangout on May the 17th with selected panellists on the UK economic situation. So the media is embracing these tools.
But I still cannot find any MP that has ever taken part. Ignorance does not seem to be a defence, because all the party leaders are on Google+ and seem keen to embrace this technology.
The technology offers everybody a chance to communicate and share in a fantastically open way and yet none of our elected MPs have chosen to use it ?
Are they scared ? and what of ?
If I'm wrong about the lack of MP's using hangouts, please let me know :-)
