Desktop Microphones Active

According to KP, the desk microphones are now on in the classroom. This will be great for using the video recordings of the lectures, however we need to be aware that the recording is happening. We need to remember to:

* Not cover-up, or brush across, the microphones.
* Keep rustling and noise to a minimum during class
* Be sure you make snarky comments very quietly ;)

Thanks for getting these turned on!

See Todd Gardner's Technology Architecture Journal for the full story.
