So, apparently the reality is somewhere between what I had hoped and what I had feared. The sessions have not been quite as crazy as yesterday, but the big ones were certainly more crowded that I remember them ever being during my last trip here. This is the line to get into the second iPhone session this morning and this wasn’t even in the big room!
During lunch, I chatted for a few minutes with a couple of guys from Fog Creek Software (this happens to be the home of Joel from Joel on Software fame). Sounds like a great place to work even if it’s in New York City. After that, I found a place to sit and catch up on email and write these entries. Here’s a few more pictures of the open areas available for folks to hang out and plug in. Power outlets are really at a premium this year. If there’s a knot of people somewhere, it’s likely they found a power strip.
More iPhone for the afternoon and, hopefully, some more questions answered.
