    I’m not sure, but I think your time is off since 1:50 PST would be 4:50 EST (not 4:40)

    Please, hire a copy editor.

    In the headline, “hangout” should be two words, and it should read, “Adafruit’s Limor Fried Will Hang Out with Obama Thursday on Google+.”

    A “hangout” is a place where one hangs out.

    Thank you.

      I chose “hangout” to play off “hangout on air” but to avoid confusion and peeved grammarians I changed it to “hang out.” Thanks.

    I think they should begin their discussion with the wave bubble… now THAT would be an interesting conversation…
