It was a Friday afternoon and I had just arrived home from a hectic day at school. The sun was streaming through my windows. I was anticipating a dinner date with my family and checked my iPad for email. Up popped a notification. I was being invited to a Hangout on Google+. I caught my breath, a nano-second horrified that I had possibly forgotten about a coaching meeting with Adria and Tanya again. The last time I had fallen asleep and had missed our meeting online altogether. I vowed this would never happen again and had a series of back- ups for preventing this embarrassing situation. After I tapped my Google+ app, I realized that I was being invited to a new hangout with Wendy, Wade, Pearl and Dwayne’s coaching group. I was excited. I hadn’t seen them in months! I immediately realized that I had to use a different app in order to join in on the video-conferencing. Within minutes, on my iPad, I was looking at Wade in his office at his desk, kicking back in his office chair and I was able to see Wendy’s adorable Chihuahua as we chatted.
