Woz draws a crowd

There's never enough hours in the day during a busy trade show and the Intel Developer Forum was no exception. Bone tired as I was at the end of each day, there was still so much more to do.

Day three featured my biggest regret. Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple and the creator of one of the biggest distractions of my teen years (the Apple IIe) was present for an interview on stage with NPR journalist Moira Gunn and to sign his book "iWoz."

Unfortunately, this overlapped with Intel CTO Justin Rattner's keynote and until they invent a Time Turner for real, I can only be in one place at a time, and Rattner it was.

On the way down from the third floor to the second of Moscone West (the floors are ridiculously far apart, almost two stories compared to a regular building), this sight greeted me.

Getting the shot involved pulling out my iPhone and running back up a down escalator. Not as easy as it sounds with one hand fumbling for a cell phone while your laptop bounces around in the backpack. So apologies to the fellow in front of me in the pics, whom I nearly collided with going up the stairs.

By the time I'd filed my report on Rattner's keynote, Woz waz, er, was gone. Well, maybe next year.
