Comment on "In Defense of WWDC 2006"
by Brian — Sep 02
This was the first WWDC I've been to, and it seemed fine to me. I was happy with the technical content, and if the food didn't suit, there were plenty of other places to get better.

To those critiquing the event for the extras, I'll offer this: Your fee pays for about 1/3 of what it actually costs to host you at the event. One third. Thirty-three percent. Apple rents the space, pays their employees to be there and take a solid week off from other, indubitably more important projects (whether you like to think so or not), lines up the programs and then, after all that's done and paid for, including all the technical ancillaries, insurance and what not, buys you food and freebies.

Now, me...I'd rather have the goods in the way of great sessions. If what you'd prefer is a hot dinner, I'd suggest you could do better by staying home and reading the rumors reports. It'd be less crowded for the rest of us.
