NASA Hosts Its First Google+ Hangout Connecting with Space Station 
WASHINGTON — NASA will host its first Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station from 11 a.m. to noon EST, Friday, Feb. 22. This event will connect NASA’s social media followers with astronauts on the ground and living and working aboard the laboratory orbiting 240 miles above Earth.  Google+ Hangouts allow as many as 10 people to chat face-to-face, while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube.
Astronauts Kevin Ford and Tom Marshburn of NASA and Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires different approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.

A  social business is collaborative, networked and non-hierarchical.    Tools for achieving that abound, but are organizational cultures  ready?   Companies have already begun to employ social tools and techniques  to  their marketing and customer service efforts.  But can they  transform  how they think and work to extend social innovations into  other key  areas of operations and management such as supply chain,  talent  management, product development and even business strategy?  On Thursday, June 30th at 12:30pm EST, IBM will host a live online discussion on the IBM GBS Livesteam Channel with social business luminaries that will discuss the viability and  challenges of businesses becoming socialized.  Joining this discussion  are:John Jordan -  professor of IT Strategy at Penn State and expert on global business  model innovation and human-centric information fusionElizabeth Lupfer - Chief Blogger at The Social Workplace and HR Technology for VerizonSara  M. Roberts - President & CEO, Roberts Golden Consulting  and Author  of Light  Their Fire: Using Internal Marketing to Ignite Employee  Performance and  Wow Your Customers
