    Yes, I'm going to MWSF '09.

    BART then walk a few blocks from Powell Street BART Station.

    Ohh, Pleasure of course, and to check out Snow Leopard and buy it on the spot.

    Definitely; that's priceless.

    My significant other and I purchased our tx at the earlybird price...:cool:

    Unfortunately you can't watch MWSF live on TV. Apple usually releases a Quicktime stream of the event within a few hours of the keynote.

    If you want to get in on the action as it unfolds, several sites do liveblogs.
    Gizmodo, Engadget, Ars, CNET and even MacRumors itself do liveblogs of Macworld, check closer to the date for details.

    (Shameless self-promotion here) My blog is also covering MWSF live, if you're interested you can check it out here: http://thegreenroomblog.wordpress.com/2008/12/08/macworld-2009-liveblog-details/

    Hope this helps out.

    I'll be there! I think I'll be able to go to the Stevenote, although I'm not sure yet. I'm local, but I've got a room in the city for a couple of nights 'cause it's much easier than schlepping back and forth (especially on Tuesday morning for the Stevenote!). I'll be there for work -- I'm giving one of the talks in the Power Tools track, and spending some time in our booth and the blogger lounge.

    Bit far to travel to SF, so I'll have to settle for the Podcasts in the iTunes to see Steve in action.....

    I'd love to go one day but its a bit far to travel. Macrumors live will have to do again. It must be good to be in the live audience when a groundbreaking product is announced.

    I'm going with my employer, flying in from Ohio. I'll probably be at their booth all week. Not sure if I'll be at the keynote.

    Myself and a friend will be flying out (We're in Kansas) for the event. No keynote for us unfortunately, but I think it'll still be fun. We're just going for the fun of it, so no business. I'll be bringing the Newton with me too!

    I'm going. Only one day back to school and then I skip a day for MacWorld!

    I'm going for fun, no keynote. I live in Sonoma, which is about 45 minutes away.

    And while I'm going for fun, I'm also going to film a news segment for my school broadcast that I'm involved in.

    Hey kainjow, which booth? It's interesting to see how far some of the vendors are willing to travel...
