Google+UberConference open up some new Net<->Phone possibilities

"UberConference Now Lets You Join Google Hangouts By Phone"

http://j.mp/1fMkFj7  (Techcrunch)

   "Shortly after Google launched Hangouts, it also started allowing you
    to add participants by dialing their phone numbers right from
    Hangouts. Even today, though, you can't dial into a Hangout. Thanks to
    TC Disrupt alum UberConference, though, you can now do just that. The
    company is launching its integration with Google+ Hangouts today."

Opening up video Hangout communication conferences to participants who
only have a phone represents a very powerful capability in a range of
situations, including emergencies of various kinds. It also means that
you can now use Hangouts On Air to conduct a Global Call-In "Talk
Radio" Program -- permitting anyone (even without Google accounts) to
watch the show live via YouTube and participate by phone. Very cool.
