Macworld 2008 Comes to a Close
It has been a good week here in San Francisco at Macworld 2008. The Moscone West was once bustling with folks but is now very quiet with only a few folks lingering. Looking down to the street there are still a lot of folks walking between the two expo halls on the ground floor of Moscone South and West.
I haven't blogged much this week. I attended some great sessions, but was also working which meant there was not a lot of time for leisure.
I'm interested to see how my thoughts about attending Macworld settle over the next few months. Was definitely worth it, but wonder if it's a one-time experience or if I'll feel compelled to come back again. The most obvious highlight was getting to see Steve Jobs deliver one of his famous Macworld keynotes in person. Another was meeting some people who I've known on email and phone but never met in person. Finally, there were a bunch of good things I learned in sessions and wandering around the showroom floor (which was quite packed with good hardware, software, and more). I guess seeing the MacBook Air in person just a few minutes after it was released was pretty cool too. If I traveled a lot I would totally sign up for one of those.
A little sad that it is coming to an end. But it is good to be headed home and back to the regular routine for a little while.
p.s. - I rented two movies from iTunes for the flight home, synced to my iPhone this afternoon
