T-Minus Sixteen Hours

Okay, I'm all checked in for my early morning flight tomorrow and I am greatly looking forward to WWDC this year.

If you see me, please stop and say "hi!". I'll be very easy to find on Tuesday, as I'll be the guy wearing an amazing Three Wolf T-Shirt :) The other days, well, I'll tweet my location periodically. I rarely leave Moscone West during the days and am going to try and get to as many of the after-hour parties and gatherings as I can.

I have not yet decided what I'm going to do about the keynote. Most likely I will play it by ear. I don't think I want to kill myself to get over to Moscone West really early in the morning, but I'll still be on Eastern time, so may just be up anyway. That's what happened last year - I found myself wide awake at 4:00am without much to do. If I'm awake early, I'll be among the crazy ones. If I'm not, then i'll be one of the lazy ones in the overflow room. Either is fine with me.

I am not making predictions this year. With the exception of the obvious ones (like new iPhone hardware this year), I don't have a very good track record at guessing what will come out of Cupertino, so I'm just going to mostly stay out of the fray.

But I don't think we're going to see a tablet or a non-AT&T phone. I will go so far as that. I think both are possibilities and neither would send me reeling in disbelief if announced, but I'm betting against either being announced on Monday. The time doesn't feel right.
