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!

There's not straight up line-in? With that you could just use a separate mic amp and be set. That or, since it's all digital, perhaps you can record the audio separately? Probably already getting to be over the top for a session video though but could work.

It ended up not being quite as bad as I made it out to be once I got used to it. The new fancy Drizzle stuff was well worth it. The REST stuff in particular seems pretty cool (though I'm personally still a hardcore SQL bawler). I also get a chuckle everytime Aker says the F work in front of an audience :)
