(With thanks to Tony Bennett, who sang at the 2009 Macworld Expo to conclude the final Apple keynote address.)
This week’s Macworld|iWorld Expo was my tenth one, all of them for MyMac. I got a real stinker of a cold at the end of day one, Thursday, that put me on the disabled list for the duration of the 2012 conference. Nemo not happy.
Our other attending staff covered my appointments. Super thanks to them.
I was a solo act for most days of the first few years at previous Macworld January events. I ran around the enormous showroom floors in Moscone’s South and North halls like a maniac, then dashed back to the press room to submit my articles and photos. Later, after dinner with San Francisco relatives, I would stay up late planning the next day’s version of what I had just done.
Using the first-in-last-out method, I was the earliest early bird and the latest night owl in the bowels of Moscone press room every morning and night.
