WWDC days four and five

On the fourth day of WWDC, Rene, Seth, and I went full out at Moscone Center, talking with developers (you'll see the video soon), meeting up with Mark Gurman and some other bloggers, and joining AgileBits, Ecamm, Jake Behrens, and Merlin Mann for dinner.

I don't have very many stories in between photos this time around, so I'm just going to embed them all here for you to scroll through and enjoy!

Day four

Seth and Leanna at WWDC

There was a really cool table made out of iPads in the Moscone Center that featured a scrolling grid of app icons. Every time an icon blinked, it represented a sale, and when an app caused a ripple, it represented a hundred sales. With all the blinking and ripples that was going on, this table ultimately represented lots and lots of cash!

At the end of the day, Rene, Seth, and I headed for dinner with AgileBits, Ecamm, Jake Behrens, and Merlin Mann at Anzu in the hotel Nikko.

At the end of dinner. Seth finally had an opportunity to meet Merlin Mann and let him know that... he looked nice today.

The meeting started out appropriate and normal.

Then things started getting a little weird...

...then just got strait up awkward.

Day five

Friday was our last day and Seth was the first of us to head home. Before saying our goodbyes, we went out for breakfast at La Boulange Bakery.

After a day of blogging and running errands like checking out of the hotel, returning MiFi's and eating lunch, it was time to drop off Rene at the airport and say goodbye.

See ya next year!

You must be pretty darn smart because that's exactly what I was thinking! But I'm old and not cool, so my spelling would have been rather drab...

Chris Parsons says:

Great photos Leanna. Glad you all had a great time. :)
