What are you going to say to your kids and grandkids in years to come when they ask “where were you when the iPhone got announced?”Last year when the intel announcement was made I had owned my PowerBook for all of one day when the keynote was presented at Macworld 2006, so I am not sure that it really registered, other than a curse or two as to why I hadn’t waited of course!!!
During WWDC06 I spent a really fun hour or so iChatting away with a couple of other MacMates as we watched the keynote come through on MacRumors.
Well tomorrow I have the opportunity to go one step further and participate in a live conference call during the Keynote Speech (9 PST), which is a collaboration between NameNetwork, MacUsersForum, Devon Technologies and I guess MyAppleStuff, as I somehow seem to have agreed to host it. The chat will be recorded and distributed later as a podcast.
And do you know what? Everyone can participate (well up to 500) thanks to Skype, ‘hand raising’ and some stuff that I probably don’t understand.
I do know what you need to do though if you want to participate:
If you are a Skype user call +990008275344690 which is a FREE number and you will be connected automatically. That is all you need to do.
If you are calling from the US call 1-712-432-4990 (long distance costs apply).
In Europe, call: Germany 01805 00 7620 UK 0870 119 1313
AND when prompted use the registration code 5344690, which is the conference room you want to join.
At the same time I will be keeping an eye on the ShareMacworld site to see what pictures they post. Well bandwidth permitting I will be – I expect there will be some pretty heavy usage tomorrow.
Whatever you are doing – have a good one. Hopefully you will find time to pop along for a chat? I am intrigued to see how this all works as I have heard mixed things about previous large scale phone conference calls.
