    So when should we get in line for this years keynote? Last year I got there at 5:45~am and wasn't even in the first 100 people. I think some people started waiting at 9:00pm the night before.

    Quick question - are you able to leave the line to use the bathroom, or if you leave the line do you have to go to the end?

    Maybe its my ignorance, but since you paid $$ for WWDC, won't you have a seat for the keynote? Why go to such extreme measures?

    My understanding is that there isn't enough room in the actual keynote room for everyone, so some people are in located in other rooms with a tv screen.

    If you are alone it is mostly based on the honor system. After standing in line for a couple of hours you get to know the people around you. So you just tell them you will be right back, however they could be jerks and tell you to get to the back of the line.

    That makes sense but again, why wait in line at 9:00pm the day before on something that you'll get to see, even if its in another auditorium

    That is a good question, I have done it and I do not know why. Why not I guess, not like I have anything better to do.

    I'm not knocking anyone doing it, I was just curious. If its like any other convention, you are limited to what you can do anyways. Go back to the hotel room, or walk around town, etc.
