Serious Gangsta Skills

I'm starting a band babe, starting a band. What could have come over me? Well today I attended Google's g|south africa 2.0 at the Turbine Hall in Newtown and I better put the hash tag here or I'll never here the end of it #gsouthafrica Anyway, side tracked there for a bit, this is the next iteration of digital according to Google. Here they showed us an in depth understanding of their products which included Google+ (Hangout, Ripples AWESOME as it shows how your post spreads as users share it), AdWords, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Places, Webmaster tools, Website Optimizer, Analytics and YouTube.

Towards the end Google brought in three South African YouTube Stars who made it. Pieter Cilliers or aka Peter Carvell and his Sixpack Factory, Griffen, his controversial website, Wat Kyk Jy with Die Antwoord - Zef Side and please don't look at the Pink Floyd shorts, and the drummer Cobus Potgieter (In the Top100 musicians on YouTube) 30 Seconds to Mars. They made it look so easy that even I now want to start a band.

But to end this post off I will link to the Google+ Hangout video that was shown to us at the start of g|south africa 2.0 and that was when the Dalai Lama was refused entry into South Africa to attend his friend Desmond Tutu's 80th birthday by the South African government and their puppet masters China. Google+ stepped in and held a Google+ Hangout between the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu. Enjoy all you Very Special People.
