Open thread / Ask me anything

When I posted the comment policy the other day, it mentioned that comments on any given post close after a certain time, and if you want to leave a comment elsewhere you should do so on the most recent open thread. So, here is one for that purpose.

I’ll also make it an “ask me anything” thread, in the tradition of the AMA forum on Reddit. If you’ve got questions about sound engineering, Melbourne, leaving tech, or whatever else, bring ‘em on.
