Conference Report: Macworld Expo 2010
[This conference review is written by contributing editor Gary Moskoff]
Macworld Expo, to some a pilgrimage, came upon us yet again this February. For me, Macworld was at the right time for a variety of meetings I already had lined up, and San Francisco is always the right place, one of my favorite cities!
The keynote, given by David Pogue, was especially noteworthy. Mr. Pogue is the personal technology columnist for the New York Times, and tech correspondent for CBS News Sunday Morning, and apparently a comedian as well, because his 9am, "Late Night with David Pogue" session kept me chuckling all day!
As I walked the expo floor and reviewed my Macworld twitter feed, it was easy to see that attendees had traveled from all over the world to celebrate all things Mac. As the halo effect of the iPhone takes a strong hold on the mass market, everyone is interested in what this community is working on.
The mass market wants this community to provide products similar to the iPhone, products that integrate directly into their lifestyle, because when products integrate into your lifestyle, they're easy, fun and improve productivity, while adding to your professional and personal persona.
I'd say that the community is catching on!
When I arrived in San Francisco, I was surprised to find that Macworld had taken over the city. iPhones and Macs were everywhere!

Don't get me wrong, the experience alone is worth the trip to CA, but the products speak for themselves: Here are my top five picks from Macworld Expo 2010:
That said, I'll be there next year, if for no other reason than to peek into this amazing subculture, to see what's next for Apple and the companies who together are driving home the Mac panamanian!
