Tyson's Corner Apple Store for the Macworld keynote tomorrow (since it seems to be impossible for me to ever connect to Apple's live event streams through my DSL, whether I'm on my OS 9, OS X or Windows box).
Any readers going? Drop me a line or say hi; I'll be the guy with thinning hair... and a goatee... uh, who is kinda short... with gray sideburns... Oh, screw it, half the people there will look like that. Take a chance. :) 1 comment(s)

I'm particularly excited about trying out the NetNewsWire Pro beta (which needs Jaguar). It might change entirely how I do the weblog. (It won't look different to you, of course.)
Also, iCal looks neat (if they ever get the bugs out, that is).
I do still try to catch certain shows (like Washington Week and the Friday wraps on the NewsHour), largely because they include reporters who are willing to give anecdotes and impressions that may not have made it into their stories; you get some additional sense of what's really going on behind the scenes ("the scenes" being the Sunday shows themselves, among others). The journalists, while they may have personal agendas which influence what they say, at least don't all have the same agenda (or one of only two narrow agendas).
Steve Chapman writes about his own lack of interest:
TV, Cokie Roberts and the real Sunday morning news [Chicago Tribune]
In many journalistic circles, it is considered a solemn obligation, and even a pleasure, to pass Sunday morning in front of the tube. ... In my younger days as a journalist, I used to make a habit of tuning in, feeling it was essential to keeping abreast of national events and writing well-informed commentary. But eventually it became apparent to me that what I was gaining in information, I was losing in perspective. I was mistaking the current for the important.I didn't know Washington Week was doing transcripts now; I just stumbled on it when I looked up the link. Hmm. I may not need to watch that one either.
(Is this a problem for shows that put transcripts up? Will talk shows lose funding because of declining viewership even if the number of people getting the information remains consistent?)
