Looking forward...

by Jason Deraleau

About this time a year ago, I was preparing to attend my first Macworld. I'd decided to bite the bullet and get a nice pass so I could see my first keynote presentation and attend some of the user conferences. I had a blast. The keynote was awesome, including the announcement of Jaguar, the 17" iMac, and revised iPods. The conferences were excellent, I learned a nice amount about AppleScript Studio and other things. The part I enjoyed most, however, was the crowd. I liked meeting new people that shared my passion for the Mac.

Well, things are a little different this year. There won't be a big Jobs keynote, but don't let that fool you. Apple's still going to be there. The vendors are still going to be there. And, most importantly, that crowd will still be there. I'm looking forward to seeing some of you next week at Macworld. I'll be coming down on Friday, just in time to catch Derrick Story's iSight Video Tricks. I'll most likely be hanging out at the O'Reilly booth and wherever there's free Internet access. So if you see me, feel free to stop by and say hi. I'll be that guy with the black "*nix is sexy" shirt :)

P.S. Congratulations to the folks behind Hydra. I love your product. Keep up the good work!

Are you attending Macworld? What vendors are you going to be sure to check out?
