Pictures from Macworld Expo

These are pictures taken at the January 2009 Macworld Expo in San Francisco, California. I did not attend the unkeynote because I was at home watching Sponge Bob with my son, so there are no pictures from it. But there weren’t any big hardware announcements anyway.

How’s this for irony? Steve Jobs didn’t give the keynote, and I was in the the Microsoft booth signing my new book, Reality Check.

This is the first guy to get a book.

And this is the first gal.

Chris Pirillo mooching off a free copy. Krystyn Chong is the other person; she can teach your cat three tricks in less than an hour.

Sheridan Jones of the Macintosh Business Unit of Microsoft. She put the whole deal together. And she’s so tall…

that she took her shoes off for the picture so as not to tower over me.

Jennifer, my BFF at Booq. This is a video of her explaining Booq products from last year’s Macworld.

My old Tumi on the left. My new Booq Python Pack on the right. The reason that I’m switching is that the Python has a great system for carrying a digital SLR.

PeachPit Press was nice enough to also sell Reality Check.

And it ran a promotion involving wearing rabbit ears to win prizes.
