Hangouts On Air

In addition to our real-world meetups that take place in central London, London Futurists also run a series of “Hangout On Air” (HOA) events.

These can be viewed in real-time, either on YouTube, or on Google+ (via this G+ page).

People who watch via Google+ are able to raise questions, and to vote (via the ‘+1′ mechanism) on questions raised by other viewers. The HOA panellists will seek to address the highest-ranked questions in the course of the discussion.

The times for these HOAs are normally given in the UK timezone. However, anyone is welcome to participate in these HOAs, from anywhere in the world, so long as you have a sufficient connection to the Internet.

Sites such as this one can be used to convert between UK times and times in other parts of the world.

Forthcoming HOAs

New HOA events will be announced shortly.
