I think the wired mic would work, or I can just sit at my laptop for the presentation like Matt and I did last time.  :)  I also have a USB Yeti Pro mic I could bring, which would mic the speaker as well as the room, so that may not be a bad thing. It has an omnidirectional setting. Do we need small speakers so that folks on G+ can communicate via audio to the room?  Should I bring an extra monitor so that we can show the hangout screen to everyone in the room without having to project it?
