Helpouts by Google

By Paul Morris

I just downloaded Helpouts by Google and the idea is brilliant.

View the 1 minute video above for an overview however the elevator pitch is that Google Helpouts is a new way to get and give help over live video with the goal being one of helping people help each other.

It reminds me of other leaders in this arena (I posted about ODesk, People Per Hour and 99 Designs 18 months ago) and it will be interesting to see in due course if Helpouts truly takes off.
