The good and the bad

I missed the Apple Developer seminar yesterday; which pisses me off to no end, since there was word of showbags to early attendees… and given that Apple handed copies of Keynote to everyone in the crowd at Steve Jobs' speech at MacWorld earlier this year, one would assume that said showbags would be reasonably generous in their offerings. Damn.

Then again, my absence from the seminar meant that I could spend the evening at the GBT watching Blueshift (friends of mine), Four Times Jimmy (Ten Foot Pole impersonators extraordinaire!) and Tantrum (sometimes moody and heavy, sometimes upbeat and pop-punky. Their lead singer resembles a young David Bowie, incidentally) do their thing onstage. Somehow a very late night segued into a fantastic day; a matching of perfect weather with enjoyable classes and pleasant conversations with attractive women in university cafeterias. Oh, and Chicken & Avocado croissants. Nice.
