So we went to the big party at Apple. Renowned techno musician BT was the surprise musical guest. It was kind of weird to visit the place I’ve been idolizing since I was five years old. Sitting around, eating tacos, joking with programmers, listening to the music, going to the bathroom, all I could think was “I’m at *Apple*”.

Don’t count on your litter falling to the earth when you drop it here.
WWDC was pretty neat, and pretty weird. Like when I went to MacHack, or camped the Apple Store opening in Milwaukee, I found that it’s easy to feel alienated even among what’s supposedly “my own kind”. While around most people I feel too nerdy to fit in properly, at these events I feel like I’m not nerdy *enough*. At least there was plenty of learning to be done, making it worthwhile. I saw a real live [Stevenote](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevenote), though Steve didn’t spend a lot of time on stage himself. I attended a bunch of sessions, met and dined with a bunch of important people, and played a lot of late-night Munchkin with my fellow bar-avoiding coworkers.
