Ubuntu Global Jam 3rd March

Andru (the guy leading the Jam in Limerick) has agreed to host a google
hangout from the ubuntuie google plus account during the Jam this
Saturday. I'm not familiar with google hangouts but if you'd like to
join the hangout I believe you need:
a google plus account
have ubuntuie in one of your circles
have the required google_talkplugin installed (deb packages available
for both 32 and 64 bit systems)
have a webcam (may or may not be required)
I had a problem installing the plugin through the automagical Software
Center (it kept crashing (this is a know bug)) so I opened a terminal
and resorted to:
sudo dpkg -i PACKAGE.deb
I think attending the Jam via the google hangout would be a great way to
get involved remotely. Of course IRC is always an option with the
#ubuntu-ie channel on freenode.
The collective wisdom of those on IRC and on the Google Hangout should
be able to respond to any questions that may arise.
Based on my understanding there is a huge drive for testing this
cycle. As 12.04 LTS will be supported for 5 years on both the desktop
and the server it should be stable and reliable.
So why not test 12.04 beta 1 on your hardware via any of the methods
