iDay in Palo Alto

Things got a little more interesting at the Apple Store in Palo Alto, Calif., compared to our video visit on Tuesday.

Here is my newest video on the hubbub, with a tour by blogger and publicity magnet Robert Scoble and some hellos from a few Silicon Valley legends gathered to honor the most exciting Apple tech device to come out since HyperCard (the inventor of that and a lot more early Apple software, Bill Atkinson, of course, was on line chatting it up with wiki inventor Ward Cunningham).

And, of course, Steve Jobs did show up in Palo Alto later (he lives nearby), but we missed that.

And thank iGod, because to see the One after the last few days, my head might have blown off.

(But if you still can’t get enough, see the Apple CEO’s full video interview at D5 this year here.)

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
