Observations and comments from eTech 2006

Here are couple quick observations from the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference 2006:
1. Don’t wear your goddamned bluetooth ear piece the whole time – not sure why I get so irrationally annoyed with this, but I do.
2. Newsflash: Apple overtakes PC laptop market with strong 70% share – or so it would seem by the looks of things here.
3. There is nothing sadder than a bunch of full-grown “hard-core” programmer types forcing themselves to fake their excitement about now doing JavaScript coding.
4. Some men can apparently pull off wearing a skirt – oh sorry a util-i-kilt
5. Web 2.0 means “we realized that crappy looking interfaces weren’t selling and so now we hired a designer”.
