The wireless internet at Moscone is slooooooow. (The ethernet, however, is blazingly fast.)
I'm not quite as novice as I thought! And maybe not as introverted, either. :)
There are so many smart, enthusiastic, friendly, creative, interesting people here.
If I used Foursquare, I could have checked in at Foursquare's San Francisco office last night, which would have been cool. But I don't, so I didn't.
Another thing I didn't do? Tell the people at Foursquare that I don't use Foursquare. ;)
I'm getting no more sleep than I do at home, but I've taken a shower every day without ever once worrying if the kids were running with scissors while I rinsed shampoo out of my hair.
Small(ish) community celebrity is a charming phenomenon. I recognized Daniel Jalkut, one of my favorite podcasters (if you're interested in Mac/iOS development, the podcast is Core Intuition) on Sunday and actually had conversation with him. He turns out to be as nice in person as he is on air. (I will say, though, actually speaking face-to-face with a voice you've listened to broadcasting for a long time is very disconcerting. And I think I had parsley in my teeth.) Two days later, I listened to Marco Arment's podcast Build and Analyze and he told a great story about noticing Scott Forstall at a bar the night before and working up the courage to introduce himself. Sitting down in relief after a brief conversation, a fellow attendee approached him, clearly nervous to be speaking to Marco Arment, the founder of Instapaper. :)
There was a line for the ladies room this afternoon!
I can't believe the week is almost over.
