Geeky Stuff Life

San Francisco and WWDC, here I come!

Mostly Lisa Heading to SF

I’m super excited to be heading to the very heart of Silicon Valley and the twitterverse Wed to go hang with the TWiP and MacBreak crew in San Fransisco and possibly bust out a podcast or two.

If you aren’t already a fan of these podcasts go check out Leo Laporte’s TWiT empire and the sweet sounds of Scott Bourne and Alex Lindsay talking photography with the occasional mentioning of SB’s luxury yauchts on TWiP (This Week in Photography).

I unfortunately won’t be there for Stevie J’s big keynote, but i’m sure one or two people will blog/tweet/lifecast about it and watching it on my MBa will be more awesome than actually being there, cuz I’ll be wearing my Shure SCL4’s in-ears during the keynote, so it will feel like Steve is actually in my head.

Oh what’s that Steve? A new iPhone? 3G? Wow! Still not in Canada? No eh. Guess i’ll just have to snuggle up with my current phone and a huge bottle of maple syrup for a few more months and watch Thundercats :p

PS. Apparently, WWDC and “Steve Jobs Keynote” doesn’t mean much to the less techie sorts of folks. As evident by this conversation I just had with my non-tech savvy friend:

friend: So what are you up to this week?

me: Yeah i’m heading down to San Fran for a big Mac conference thing.

friend: The makeup? Oh wow!

.me: No the computers

friend: Oh you mean like Dell?

me: Yes. Exactly like Dell. *throws disgusted look* iPhone? iPods? Steve Jobs? John Mayer?

friend: Oh yeaaaah. I just got a Zune!

We aren’t all meant to illuminate our minds with knowledge and enlightenment. Some people are just better off being in the dark.

    Yeah, first commenter (for the very first time!) – we haven’t talked or Twittered in a while so I figured I’d drop a comment. Have fun in San Francisco. Que te diviertas! We’ll chat when you get back.

    If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

    One thing that i can’t understand…

    Why didn’t they lowered the price of the Ipod family?!?

    You can now get a 8Gb Iphone 3G $100 US cheaper then a 8Gb Ipod Touch…. i don’t get it….. I’m i missing something in here?!?

    I just discovered your blog and you seem to be a lot of fun. I am deciding on whether or not to upgrade to the new iPhone. I don’t think that the area where I live has 3G coverage.

    BTW, I used to be all about MAC cosmetics so now I when I say MAC people assume that I am talking make up but I may be talking about either of them. LOL
