We're off to Macworld on Wednesday (so use my ZiffNet/Mac account <72511.306@compuserve.com> for urgent email), and it promises to be an exciting show.

Steve Maller of General Magic wrote to tell us that Andy Hertzfeld and Bill Atkinson, two of the major deities in the Mac developer pantheon will give the first public demonstrations of Magic Cap and Telescript technologies at the tenth anniversary keynote address, which looks like it will be on Thursday morning at 10:00.

I've finalized the details of the book signing, so if you're around on Friday afternoon at 1:30, come to the Hayden booth (#718) and I'll be more than happy to sign copies of the Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh. I assume someone sells them on the floor if you don't already have one. In addition, Hayden somehow managed to rook me into demoing on Thursday morning at 10:30 the MacTCP software that I wrote about in the book. Why do I have a bad feeling about trying to make a solid connection on an unknown Mac, with a new modem, and via a long distance phone call over a phone line that might have people standing on it? If you come to watch, please be gentle.
