#Macworld Guide

10Feb10

Some are off to a snowy #EFM, and some are already enjoying a sunnier #TED, but with Macworld at Moscone, where else would we be.  They’re expecting a crowd of 30,000 so we’re off to check out what life will be like without Apple’s Orwellian ginormous looming black tombstone wall.  Times have changed.  Apple fandom has more to do now with the third party developer community than with the mothership, so we shall see.  All the usual suspects will be there:  Guy Kawasaki, David Pogue and Leo Laporte, and a few bonuses like filmmaker Kevin Smith (Chasing Amy, Clerks..), Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) and a timely look at iPad.  Macworld won Most Schwaggiest of all the digital media conferences last year so we’ll be live tweeting at #Macworld as we search the floor for Best of Schwag. There will also be live podcasting at www.macworldexpo.com/mainstage.  Here’s the guide:
