    You knew it was bound to happen, Greg Packer, the fellow camping outside the Apple store in Manhattan has started a blog detailing his ~96 hour wait for the iPhone.
    The blog can, predictably, be found at none other than: FirstInLine

    Bonus round!

    It appears that the number threee iPhone camper has started a blog also. His name is David Clayman, and he will be detailing his adventure at:

    Nice, do they get WiFi from the store? If so, can I say awesome?

    Actually, #3.

    Greg Packer and his friend are numbers one and two, and David Clayman is the third.

    good catch. Whose taking bets on how long it takes before this guy has to turn off his cell phone. I can't believe he posted his phone number on the internet.

    He totally responded, here's his response to my question, "How's the line going?"

    "Right now, it's very quiet.It will get bigger as time goes on."

    It does get boring in the line, but is he gonna sleep? It is 2:45am in NYC currently.

    Let's hope he has an unlimited text messaging plan.

    He left me a voicemail saying the line is quiet and that it's good to hear from another Mac user. Haha, this is awesome! :)

    For laughs, I texted him:

    [Me]
    Man! You've got some commitment! I won't have to wait as long as you, but good luck. You've got a long three days.

    [Greg]

    The first guy in line looks like he's been there a few days (already). What a loser.

    this guy is really asking for donations! wtf, i mean its not like its a poor homeless man. its a guy living of my hard earned tax money who probably still lives in his moms basement. someone should go by and soak him with water and throw eggs at him, you know he won't get up and chase you.

    I personally think that it's kind of cool that they're inviting people to communicate with them...I personally think guy #3 sounds pretty cool and wish he had thrown up his phone number so I could send him a text.

    Edit: I just spoke to Greg on the phone and he seems like a really nice guy. We chatted a bit about boston (where I'm from) and life "on the outside" and I passed along regards to the people in line. Pick up the phone if he calls you back! these guys need SOMETHING to do all day!

    Is is me, or does the first guy in line not really fit in the iPhone demographic?

    He seems more like a guy who should be sitting in a pickup, drinking a soda (beer), and talking on a CB...not an iPhone.

    Oh well, there are all types, and I am sure Apple will appreciate his money just as much as mine....

    Oooo First!!

    Congrats on your 15 minutes. You'll be completely forgotten about in just a few days. (and from what I understand, he's not even buying an iPhone, just wanted to look at one - pointless)
