Dear Macworld Diary,

My Tech Talk this morning, “40 Tips in 40 Minutes” with David Sparks and Merlin Mann went really well, I think. I had fun doing it, anyway. I put up some show notes at the soon-to-change, if you’re interested. I’m looking forward to seeing David and Merlin with Rob Corddry tomorrow. If you’re around Macworld, you should probably get there early!

Lunch with Shawn Blanc, Stephen Hackett, Brett Kelly, Ben Brooks, and Thomas Brand was awesome1. Great to meet so many cool people all at once.

I just got back from a clandestine meeting at the Samovar Tea Lounge (I love that place). I had tea. We had laughs. I was shown software. It was amazing. I will pimp the hell out of it when it comes out in the next couple of months. Until then, all I can say is just prepare to have core elements of your workflow change drastically, for the better. That’s the second game-changer I’ve been shown lately but can’t disclose yet. I will go insane if this keeps happening.

Also, if you are in San Francisco right now, swing down to Jillian’s tonight before 11pm and catch up with the TUAW crew. It’s going to be a good time. Low-key, good conversation, and probably drink tickets.

  1. Sorry, total nerd namedrop linkfest. Really fun bunch, though.
