Macworld is much more than a mass of booths of vendors hawking products. There are always an interesting mix of expert presentations that do not require the high-priced entry fee. Free expert dog and pony shows abound at this show. I took advantage of a presentation by Photographer Al Satterwhite at the Apple Store on Monday night and was enlightened as to how he manages his photographic work flow, the lenses he uses, and how he handles scanning his 30+ years of photos. The theater overflowed with photographers of all levels.
On Tuesday, I caught much of Kevin Smith’s feature presentation. When I arrived, about 15 minutes into it, I saw a huge hall completely packed with laughing, smiling, and enraptured attendees listening to Kevin. Users were lined up behind four microphones asking Kevin questions and he answered them in a comfortable, offbeat and definitely x-rated style.
He was incredibly comfortable with his thousand-person audience (I’m guessing at the numbers) and leaned back on his podium and delivered quite a baudy set of hysterical responses to most of the questions. He loves his Mac computers, but apologized for not remembering the model of his first Mac. It is impossible for me to recount much of what he said, because, afterall, this is a g-rated site. Trust me, it was over the top entertainment and we all learned a bit of what makes him tick.
