Yearly pilgrimage to San Francisco

So, once again I am on my favourite and least favourite trip of the year. I am in SF for the yearly Mac geek fest that is WWDC.

I arrived by cattle-car airlines (United Express) and went straight to my hotel in the down town area.

It's a favourite because of the brain dump. It's a least favourite, because here in S.F. I have the worst luck catching up with anyone up here that I might know if even remotely.

So, dear readers... if there is anyone who's been reading me, who lives in the S.F. area and would like to meet for warm beverage wduring the late evening for the first few days this week. (Hell, even tonight)

Then, comment, IM, text message... you know the drill :)

I am G33K, PH34R me!

And on 3 hours of sleep, here I sit. I am on the stone step outside the entrance of the Moscone West conference center for WWDC 2005. The annual Macintosh brain dump. New stuff and elaborations on engineering advancements from the mothership of the giant (now colourless) fruit.

I am here now because the doors in fact open at 7am. The only event this morning will be the keynote speech by the royal god of all kool aid, Steve Jobs. This will not be until 10 am. I arrived at 6am.

Please note it is currently 51° in San Francisco, not counting the chill factor from the overnight iced stone on my posterior. Why 6am? Well, this is a geek fest. Picture the worst anthtropomorphisation of the Simpson's comic book guy. If you have that image in your head and you will picture the 15 people that were here already when I showed up at 6am.

Looking at the collective, I have come to the conclusion that long hair is now officially "out" among the geek crowd. Oh good, I still stand out from the crowd. Yay.

6:30, now 29 people. I will be updating here and also at http://lordandrei.buzznet.com

If the photo blog site interests you, I'll send you an invite. Not that it's needed for this free site, but... it gets me referral pluses. :)

More later... *wave*
