I don't understand. We are kwlug. Why is this compatibility an issue?

Said another way ...
- anyone have a bluetooth headset?
  - or even a wired headset with a mini-stereo extension cord?
- can a computer be cabled out to the sound system?
  - easier to master one computer / sound system connection, perhaps 
with many headset / computer connections.
- will this work / can it be trialled? (i.e. No cost to prototype the 
idea.)

Or have I just revealed my audio ignorance here?

By extension ... two headsets to the same computer? (Multiple 
presenters, or pass the headset to the audience member with a question?)

Further ... if we ever want to record a meeting (for the site), do we 
not have to overcome these technical hurdles in this way anyways? Let 
alone a simultaneous camcorder feed?

WE ARE KWLUG! WE HAVE THE EXPERTS! (Such as they are.) WE HAVE THE 
TECHNOLOGY!

(It may take us time to figure out how to use it? Penguins waddle, 
after all?)
