[ 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.
Word is that Steve Jobs himself and various Apple execs will be introducing Mac OSX 10.7 (Lion), iOS 5, and iCloud at the 2011 WWDC. Along with questions about how each of these new products will interrelate, we're all wondering about what hasn't been teased: maybe a new iPhone?
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!
