Watching iPhoneDevCamp from a distance


iPhoneDevCamp (the first developer conference since the release of the iPhone–100% community driven) is underway in at the Adobe offices in San Francisco.

Robert Scoble has a summary of what he’s seen so far at the event, and unfortunately it’s playing out like I thought it might–sans Apple:

“I’ve already met a Microsoft employee. A Yahoo employee. A Verisign employee. But where’s the Apple employees? Here are 300 developers who WANT to help Apple make its iPhone even better. Yet Apple’s secrecy and lack of care for developers demonstrates itself by not showing up.”

Yeah, Robert, history may be repeating itself, but I’d still like to be at iPhoneDevCamp. It’s a events like this where a lot creativity is nourished and inspired.
