[ Update: 10am PT: the BB 2011 WWDC liveblog is under way. ]
I'll be at the Moscone Center in San Francisco this morning for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, and will be live-blogging photos and tweets from the event on the Boing Boing Liveblog.The keynote is scheduled to start at 10am Pacific time (1pm ET, or GMT-7) today Monday, June 6, 2011.

We'll all find out soon enough, and I'll be alerting you as fast as my fingers can tweet and my wireless-connected digital camera can publish. If you have questions, or are curious about anything in particular in the keynote, please send me a tweet so I can look into it and take some pictures for you!
