I visited NotCon ’04 yesterday and had a lot of fun being able to go into maximum geekitude along with the rest of the 300+ attendees. I didn’t hear anything particularly new at the conference apart from the announcement of the wonderful TheyWorkForYou.com website, but I met a bunch of interesting people and reveled in the ability to engage in IRC backchat during sessions over the free wireless network, and later on, assist in the collaborative editing of some session notes.
On another note, Apple are expected to announce some sort of wireless FireWire peripheral in the coming weeks. Since the term ‘wireless FireWire’ is a little silly, there’s been speculation as to how they’ll rename it. My prediction is FreeFire.
