Beggars can't be choosers, but if I could make a request to using a lapel mic I think it would be a non-issue. Really, though, the talk was well worth it, despite the minor irritation with the audio. Really exciting work!

Unfortunately lapel mics are not possible, particularly with the
camera that was used.  Damn Sony and their proprietary
attachments....there's only one place to put a mic of any kind, and
the mic was in "directional" mode at the time.  :(

The perils of partitioning the "open" space have been duly noted and
we'll consider that in future OpenSQLCamp locations.
