‘Cause You Want to Be Immersed in the Apple Experience: Macworld Jan 5-9, 2009

It’s coming! Macworld, a five day celebration that immerses you in all things Mac is coming to SF in Jan 5-9, 2009. With two full halls of exhibitors, Macworld offers access to hundreds of Mac products and services, paired with expert advice, demonstrations and instruction. Macworld conference programs feature industry leading minds, presenting cutting edge product training on the topics you most want to see. Whether you are a creative professional or a Mac IT pro, Macworld has the conference content, special presentations, exhibit hall highlights and experiences that meet your specific Mac needs. Steven Jobs typically gives only two strong keynote speeches a year, where he unveils the latest and greatest Apple products, that’s MacWorld in January and one at Apple's World Wide Developer Conference in June. At MacWorld 2007 he announced the Apple TV (*shrug) and iPhone (Cowabunga!) and in 2008 he showed up the leaner meaner Macbook Air. Rumors are flying around on what he might introduce in 2009 – wild guesses range from a larger iPhone/web pad to iPhone nano. (More rumors at TechCrunch.) More than anything this event looks interesting because the most cutting edge vendors come here to show off their newest software for all to see and experience. So whether you’re into graphic design, digital photography or just want to get more out of your Mac, check out the Macworld conference! And if you’re still not convinced..I like this tidbit from their website. Exciting? Yes. Overwhelming? Sometimes. Invigorating, inspiring and energizing? Absolutely. Macworld…the experience.

Ever wonder what it would be like to swim with jellyfish? Travel and adventure photographer Kien Lam fulfilled this fantasy by flying across the globe to Jellyfish Lake in Micronesia. Anyone who has been stung by a jellyfish can attest—it’s not a pleasant experience.
