How many of you are familiar with the concept of a Google Hangout?
Better yet, how many of you are web developers and are familiar with the concept of a Google Hangout?
I assure you, the number in answer to this question is low in India. At least, that’s the conclusion I’m forced to reach after having liaised with a large number of such developers for a news-daily in south India. Just today, I’d asked Mr. SH, who heads a small web-dev firm in Chennai, if we could have a Hangout in the evening to iron out some creases. His response: “OK… What’s a Hangout? Do I need to be in front of a computer for it?”
Others didn’t answer all that differently, either. Sure, it could be that the idea of a Hangout isn’t as ubiquitous as some would like it to be, but I can’t see how a developer can’t have heard of it.
