So, yes, I have an RCCS circle, but it’s just a few people. My largest circle is Cyclists. I’ve met them (online) and a few I knew IRL (in real life). G+ has a feature (that I’ve never used) called Hangouts. My understanding is that it’s just a video chat of a number of people. I won’t do this at work, and I’m often not dressed at home, so I’ll just have to miss out. 🙂
However, some in my cycling circle are trying out HIRLs. This is a Hangout In Real Life. John from Elizabethtown Kentucky visited Ben in Virginia. Asher from here in Louisville also visited Ben. A woman from New Jersey is traveling to Oregon for work, and will HIRL with some others in her circles.
Scott is coming through Louisville on his way to northern Indiana on Thursday. I going to meet up with him for lunch across the river in Jeffersonville. Matt, from here in Louisville, was going to join us, but turns out he’ll be busy. Too bad. He lives here, but I have yet to meet him IRL.
I have a conference to attend in San Diego next month, but I don’t have anyone from San Diego in my circles. Oh well.
The bad part about G+? I’ve almost entirely quit posting here. I’m trying to rectify that now. I’m not going to quit using G+ and there really is a high-level of discussion on a variety of topics, from bicycles and traffic, to Roger and his Macaw. My posts get many more comments there than here.
