Sitting here in Ames Hall at the Berkman Center in the unconference part of the Beyond Broadcast Conference: Open Media Developers Summit II.
The session leaders are passing around a mic, and when Pat Aufderheide speaks into the mic, there is a really weird haunting whiny feedback tone that almost drowns her out.
At first, thought it was due to another mic interfering, but no other speaker using the same mic had the problem. When the mic went back to Pat, the feedback whine rang out yet again.
She's either bugged, or the NSA doesn't want anyone to hear what she's saying.
Update: Pat, relax, it's not just you. Seems to be the mic is dying. Maybe the mic's bugged?
