How can I better organize my schedule through better use of my work and personal calendars across platforms? My primary calendar at work is through Outlook/Exchange, but for personal correspondence I use gmail/google calendar, mostly accessed through my iphone or a browser on my mac.

Suggestions of articles/resources to help me figure this out also welcome! [more inside]

In my organization, we're not great at job titles. Mostly they aren't really needed.

I feel like it had a stub or some brief mention on Wikipedia, and I remember first encountering the idea in someone's forum signature.

I design museum exhibits. Is there an off-the-shelf product that'll broadcast at least 4 channels to 20 or so headphones over a range of not more than a few hundred feet (or some variable distance)?

There are things that get close, but I haven't seen a single solution that covers all the bases.
