Possible WWDC '09 dates

A potential timeframe for the 2009 Worldwide Developers' Conference has been identified, reports say. The conference is typically held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and investigation reveals that a "corporate meeting" has been scheduled for June 6th to the 12th. Most events at the Center are scheduled under identifiable names months in advance, but Apple is said to be known for pretending to anonymity.

The event is always scheduled for approximately mid-year, and anticipated as much by the media and the public as by Mac developers. It is a frequent platform for new product announcements, and during the past two years, has specifically served as the herald of impending iPhone launches. For 2009 it is widely anticipated that Apple will introduce a new iPhone, one which could represent a major revision, such as a second cheaper model. The company will also likely highlight Mac OS X Snow Leopard, launching it shortly thereafter if it has not already debuted.

    It is a freakin' developer's conference. Why in the world would anyone care about 'anonymity', secrecy, or surprise? So people who need/want to go and spend their $2000 at the conference can be sure to have to get last minute reservations, and be assured of spending the most possible on airfare and accommodations?

    Why indeed...

    Because apart from the potential product announcements and news, there are excellent sessions on all areas of Mac development, including access to the creators of well-known tools and previews of upcoming products? Because attendees have to go under NDA for the new material they're exposed to? Because thousands of people get excited about innovation?

    Because, My Dear Watson..

    mrturtle, I think testudo is actually asking why the anonymity, and not what the point and excitement is about about the developer's conference.

    My guess is that they're hedging just in case they need to delay the conference by a month or so (like they did the other year).

    What I'm interested in knowing is how "pretending to anonymity" made it past the copy editor.
