Pictures from Macworld Expo

1.jpg

These are pictures taken at the January 2009 Macworld Expo in San Francisco, California. I did not attend the unkeynote because I was at home watching Sponge Bob with my son, so there are no pictures from it. But there weren’t any big hardware announcements anyway.

How’s this for irony? Steve Jobs didn’t give the keynote, and I was in the the Microsoft booth signing my new book, Reality Check.

3.jpg

This is the first guy to get a book.

4.jpg

And this is the first gal.

Chris Pirillo mooching off a free copy. Krystyn Chong is the other person; she can teach your cat three tricks in less than an hour.

6.jpg

Sheridan Jones of the Macintosh Business Unit of Microsoft. She put the whole deal together. And she’s so tall…

7.jpg

that she took her shoes off for the picture so as not to tower over me.

8.jpg

Jennifer, my BFF at Booq. This is a video of her explaining Booq products from last year’s Macworld.

9.jpg

My old Tumi on the left. My new Booq Python Pack on the right. The reason that I’m switching is that the Python has a great system for carrying a digital SLR.

PeachPit Press was nice enough to also sell Reality Check.

And it ran a promotion involving wearing rabbit ears to win prizes.

Russell Brown, Jedi master of Photoshop.

Someone trying Ocarina at the Smule booth. This is one of the coolest iPhone apps I’ve ever seen.

Booths are getting more and more beautiful and “Japonesque.”

Kerio is the provider of the Exchange server that I use.

My buddies from iStockphoto were there too.

This company gives a whole new meaning to tripods.

Eye-Fi makes a SD card for your camera that wirelessly transfers your pictures to your computer.

This is the panel of some of the people in the movie. That’s Woz and Andy Hertzfeld on the right.
