In practice, how do you figure out which 10 people get a voice on the
Google Hangouts? And how do I set up the meeting & promote it? I'm not
very familiar with it in the "broadcast" mode, any help you can give
would be welcome.

Thanks, that all sounds great.

Has anyone tried BlueJeans for a broader video meeting yet? I like that
you can access it with free software, and I like that it doesn't limit
you at 10 active participants (I think we will get more than that).
