Macworld Expo is now over, and I have the stack of business cards, brochures, and a wee bit of swag to show for it. My favorite giveaway was a Google Earth notepad, which has one of those images that change depending on the angle you view it at; in this case, it’s a zoom-in from outer space to someone’s back yard, done in about a dozen images.
This year’s show was crazy for me. With four presentations (and preparing for presentations), lots of meetings, and articles to write, I didn’t even see much of show floor until Friday. And it felt like it was always crowded. As with previous years, I ended up sleeping around 4-5 hours per night. However, my sessions went extremely well, especially the one I was most worried about.
My reward is that I’m spending this weekend with my mom on her farm near Dixon, which is the total opposite of being at Macworld: instead of being surrounded by thousands of people and lots of noise, I’m here with two people and some wild cats. I slept nearly 11 hours last night.
Now, I launch into a busy winter and spring feeling recharged.
