    conference calls are vile. my auditory processing disorder makes them just hell for me, as i’ve got to devote an incredible amount of CPU to make sense of them. ugh.

    Several departments here at work got fed up enough that they grabbed the corporate credit card and snagged a bunch of those fancy high-tech, high-quality triangular-ish speakerphones from eBay. The peasants rejoiced.

    I’m on these sorts of calls all the time. The only thing at works is to establish behavior norms on the participants, such as designated times to talk and limiting discussions to relevant speakers. I’m one of the worst offenders at speaking out of turn, so I can certainly sympathize.

    I used to work in the box office of a movie theater, and got some KILLER feedback with the mic there. Good times.
