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.)

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
