    There is a dutch site 'Applebits.com' that will do live coverage.
    Good for me, although I would have loved MR to do coverage on WWDC

    I think that lots of people are going to be coming to this site for updates tomorrow. This site may even break the 259 guests mark!

    I am wondering how the servers will manage with so many guests/members. We got I think 256 at macrumors at one time for updates on MYTokyo as a peak, maybe one or two more. And I got problems about the server being too busy.

    And I do not remember there being any webcast for Tokyo, and that was pretty big. So since WWDC may be not much bigger than that, why would people want to start broadcasting?

    So people come here to our servers. How will the servers manage so many guests?

    I've always used MacWorld or MacAddict, they've been really good at updating a simple text page with the minute by minute, blow by blow coverage. I'll come here to see what's posted, but the very nature of the threads do not allow for easy review of the whole thing. It will only be good after everythings been said and we can all talk about it.

    isn't WWDC more of a developer and industry thing? i was never expecting a broadcast or any coverage. we'll probably have to wait until Apple announces something.

    is it just me

    Is it just me or are Apple events becoming more and more hyped every year???
    People are even getting overly excited about WWDCs now. What's going on?
    I won't be excited until I see my iBook running VPC5 and MS Word fast like they used to under OS 9.

    Re: is it just me

    Yep... and sites like this don't help... ;)

    seriously though... the MacWorld hype didn't start until Jobs returned and the iMac was introduced. Sure... there was plenty of rumor digging etc... prior to all previous macworld events... and people liked hearing about what new processors were coming out...

    But it really did all change when the iMac came out. Suddenly, Apple really surprised us. And you knew the towers were going to be the next redesign... the frenzy got going... I remember Appleinsider had very bad sketch of what the current towers were going to look like the night before the release... fun times. :)

    What drives the excitement now is that potential - the potential for them to come out with the Next Great Thing... I doubt they can ever live up to the hype it draws now... but it's a fun/exciting scene.

    MWSF 02 was the most intense pre-expo that i've seen.

    MWNY 02 will be as well, I imagine... but to be honest... I think MWSF 03 is going to the end all. That's when many feel the G5 will make it's debut...

    Re: is it just me

    This is nothing compared to MWSF 2002. Apple directly contributed to the hype that time too. All that's happening now it people working themselves up over could be's. If Apple gets on the Hype Bandwagon for MWNY I'll bet its even worse than MWSF. Every one is waiting for the new pro machine and Apple knows this. If they start saying things like last time 'Way beyond the rumor boards', the rumor feeding frenzy will be all about the G5 or what ever they bring forward.
