Written by Jaime Walden


I make lists for everything.  So, for my first post here is a list of my Macworld highlights:

1.  Landing in San Francisco (note: I am better on the ground.)
2.  At the hotel, Jeff sitting in a a very large puddle in a 1980s pop-culture chair.
3.  After a long set-up day at the Moscone, going to Ann’s new place (from Apple,) where she made a special gluten-free lasagna for me!
4.  Seeing Liyana’s reaction to the Bus. 
5.  Talking with Tapiwa from Liyana about Walker Texas Ranger.
6.  I am obsessed with our newly installed Litepanels.  I would have also frozen in the Moscone without them!
7.  Meeting so many wonderful new people (SFSA students, Julia Chigamba, Towela), and watching them create a song and music video in two days!
8.  After so much hard work, having a successful and fun after party featuring Liyana and our video premiere.
9.  Singing silly songs with Rob Healy, Healy.
10. Comparing shoe sizes with Sinbad.

Side note: I still need to see the Full House house!!!
On Mama’s Jukebox: MGMT - “Kids”
