Based on my blog entries, I’ve been to Macworld Expo twice so far… my first in 2003, then in 2006 when the MacBook Pro was launched (though I did go to Apple WWDC around 1997).
Back then, videoblogging was at the early adopter stage, so that’s where I scored the earliest video of the MacBook Pro’s debut. This was a milestone in my life as a blogger, with 733,560 Youtube views helping to thrust this blog into a moment’s limelight.
As many of you know, I’ll be making a trip to this year’s Macworld Expo where I’m expecting to see an ultraportable MacBook of sorts. My 12″ G4 Powerbook had served me well back in 2006, but Intel was the way to go for videoblogging, thus the 15″ MacBook Pro. I’d seriously get something smaller as I love getting out and about, without the lug.
While spending a week in San Francisco, I’m hoping to meet up various folks there. Besides checking off interesting meetups listed on Upcoming.org, I called out on Facebook and Twitter for anyone interested in catching up. Here’s a tentative plan for my week:
As you can see, the week is abuzz with activities, from Macworld Expo itself (which I’ll be covering extensively here), to various geek meetups (SF has so much going on!), to meeting personalities around the area. Catching up with my SF friends is a must, and some interesting appointments I’ve made include…
– Priscilla Tan who works at Yahoo! and is stopping over from CES.
– Roy Chean, a Singaporean who works as a Mac specialist in the University of Melbourne, Australia.
– Dave Cohn, director of distributed reporting at NewAssignment.net (see Assignment Zero).
– Also arranging an interview with the Microsoft Mac Business Unit to talk about Office 2008 for Mac.
Drop me a line if you’d like to meetup, especially if you have something that might interest me. I do wish I could visit some of the web companies there, but I don’t think I know anyone there.
