I just did a short presentation via Skype for the Washington State Bar Association’s “Mission: Possible” conference, and the Twitter action was as much about my microphone as the substance of my talk (maybe substance is the wrong word, in that case). Anyway, for those who want to sound awesome over Skype and look good if the mic makes it into the frame, it is the Blue Snowball:

(It’s also the microphone I used for my podcast with Daniel Gershburg, and why I sound good on it even though he was doing the recording on his end.)
