(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Am I too late for my post-wwdc post?

Yea? Ok, well here it is anyway.

WWDC was fun, had a good time. Didn't stay out late Thursday and unsurprisingly I felt like Friday was the best day. I also discovered where they were hiding the good coffee on Thursday. Maybe that was it. I saw tons of folks, but not enough of everyone.

Ars Technica / Infinite Loop has a video interview with me up on the site, which was fun to do. Thanks Clint and Jacqui!

The Cocoaheads meeting was a fun as well, and it seemed to go over good for everyone that showed up. It was pretty crowded. Uber-thanks to Scott Stevenson for organizing that. (Although next time I do a pres, I've got to rehearse it first. You would think I'd have learned my lesson by now).

I sort of felt like this year was less technical than previous years, which was a little ... weird. Or maybe it was because a lot of the stuff that's new was new last year too. I'm not sure. I do know there were lots and lots and lots of people who were new to Mac OS X, and it showed by the long lines to get into the "starter" sessions. Big lines. Crowded rooms. Lots more folks. It was a little bit frustrating, and I probably vented a little bit too much to some hard working folks (sorry!), but hey- overall wwdc was good as usual. Especially Friday. I like what they've done with JavaScriptCore.

Although the biggest thing I learned this week (the hard way) is that you're never supposed to give feature requests in a pub.

Doh.

It was really just a question if a particular thingie got fixed and ... well, nevermind.

I'll be back next year, and hey- C4 is only 52 days away!
