Hi Folks,

I was thinking of experimenting conducting online outreach.  I want to try out 
if we can do an effective outreach event using a google+ (video) hangout.  
Virtual outreach has a number of advantages:

* No investment of time/effort/cost in travel
* Personal attention to each participant (because of individual 
video/screenshare facilities.)
* No complications of no laptops available at the venue or a limit on creating 
user names from a single IP address during the event
* Lower dependency on institutions/college fests to organize an event for us.
* Not limited by physical presence. Sitting in Kanyakumari,  one can conduct 
outreach for interested folks in Kashmir!

This is just a trial to test if online outreach is effective, doable and 
manageable. This could be one of the ways forward!  (Potentially, we could have 
more community members doing more events with a more diverse audience.)

I'm really excited.  Fingers crossed!
