Google IO 2012

Like last year Google broadcasted the keynotes of the annual developer event (Google I/O) at their local offices . I came down to their office on 27th and 18th June night despite EURO semifinal matches scheduled right after that.

Most amazing part of the Keynotes were the featured video if Virtual Start Party , which I am regularly part of.It was an awesome idea from Fraser Cain and Pamela Gay , who started recording their podcast from Google hangouts . Later many astronomers joined them in Hangout on Air and used their telescopes to broadcast live images from Sky. Following is the full length video from which some clips were shown in the keynote. I think Virtual Star Party is the best use case of Google Plus  hangout till now.



Following are my notebook pages on both the days
