ClearOne reported total revenues of $10.6M in Q3, up 4% sequentially but down 18% year over year.

Wait, Roundup is a weedkiller.  My trip to Educause 2017 was more about me being a pest, buzzing around and piercing vendor noise, and there’s no suppressing an analyst on a mission, so let’s call this a wrap-up.  I’m going to dive-bomb the Educause experience by selecting, one after another, a series of targeted announcements I heard or briefings I held.  Random, yes, though I’ll try to stack the deck with the most succulent morsels.
