I’ll be onstage at several points this week:
Thursday 2:30-3 PM, Main Stage
The Year Of No Media – I spent 2009 with the goal of acquiring no physical media of any kind. No CDs, no DVDs, no books, no magazines, no newspapers, no comics, no nothin’. It turned out to be a comprehensive report card on the transition from physical to digital media. What kinds of physical media can you do without? And which forms of information and entertainment have been completely passed by?
Friday 12:45-1:15 PM, Main Stage
He Wants To Kill Your Newspaper: An Interview With Webcomics Magnate Scott Kurtz – I’ll be onstage interviewing the avuncular creator of the popular webcomic PVP. It’s pretty well-timed, given the iPad announcement. We’ll talk about the strip, how self-publishing has changed the career path of budding comic strip creators, and how mobile devices are influencing the field.
Friday 2:30-3, Booth 1765
iPhone Fully Loaded – I’ll be in Wiley Publishing’s booth (next to the Macworld Music Studio) talking up the latest edition of my iPhone book and probably giving out all of the best information from the thing.
Saturday 1-2, Room 134
That iPad Thingamawhatsit – I’ll be talking about the iPad, alongside Jason Snell (Czar Pluropentate of Macworld Magazine), Ryan Block, Ted Landau, and Dan Moren.
By all means, do stop by and give a listen if so inclined.
