debuted a few years ago, they were mostly glitchy and unreliable.
They can still be glitchy – the frame freezing or sound
disappearing – but those moments are relatively rare.
What hangouts deliver is an opportunity to see and hear the
other person. I’ve taken to promoting and archiving candid
and unscripted conversations with colleagues around the world
to unpack recent events, preview upcoming conferences and generally
have a pleasant chat about common interests.
The following hangouts recorded in July and August explored
the breadth and depth of conscious, responsible, ecotourism.
We chatted with local activists in Nevada protecting wilderness,
cultural tourism entrepreneurs in Australia, Costa Rica, Greece,
Ireland and Romania. We celebrated the final days of a world
famous craft store in Oaxaca City, Mexico. We celebrated Indigenous
Peoples Week and continued the conversation about Local
Responsible Travel in the USA.
