GOOD Ideas: Our Google Hangout Series
Tune in on select Fridays at 11:30 a.m. PST for GOOD Ideas, an online web series where we hang out with cool people making the world a better place. The series will be live-streamed on good.is and our Google + page (yep, we actually use it). We'll chat with entrepreneurs, graphic designers, teachers, doctors, bike aficionados, city planners, and other GOOD community change-makers. We hope you'll join us!
Check in here to see who we'll be hanging out with or to catch an episode you might have missed. And we invite you to pitch up ideas in the comments below.
