Life on transit: let’s talk about the Buzzer in a Google Hangout, Mar 27, 2013!


For March/April 2013, we’re spotlighting Life on Transit—observing and illuminating the quirks and habits of daily transit rides around our region!

Buzzer logos through the years!

Buzzer logos through the years!

Well, there’s no mainstay of transit life like The Buzzer, our 96 year old transit newsletter!

So we’d like to offer a chance to learn more about our dear Buzzer with its current editors in a modern way: a Google Hangout!

A Google Hangout is a live video chat run through the Google+ social network. We’ve never done a hangout before, and we’d love to see if it’s a great way to chat with you guys!

So if you’d like to join us, here are the details:

  • Date and time: Wednesday, March 27, 2013 – noon to 1pm!
  • Where: Online! Here’s the Google Hangout event listing. The Hangout can also be seen on our Google+ profile page.
  • Who: Jhenifer Pabillano and Robert Willis, Buzzer editors!
  • What: All about the history of the Buzzer, plus answers to any questions you might have.

As well, if you’re interested in participating live in the Hangout via video, send us a note!

Be aware that this is our first Hangout, so it won’t be perfect, though we’ll do our best. And if we don’t see there’s very much interest in the Hangout for next week, we’ll cancel the event and let you know :)

    Oh I love love love the 1925 – 1936 logo!

    The “hangout” is a great idea but such unfortunate timing! I’m in Seattle on the 27th. :(

    The 1993-2010 Buzzer logo, isn’t there one with the circle around “The” … Would that be considered a logo change? … Just sayin’.

    Tone1point1: But you can still watch the hangout from Seattle! Such is the power of the internet :D
