During the upcoming
MacMania cruse, there will be a panel discussion on “The Future of Mac Software.”
For 1.5 hours Andy Gore, Jesse Feiler, David Pogue and Adam Engst will prognosticate on what’s next for Mac OS X and what new applications we can expect to see in coming months. They’ll answer such questions as “Will there be new programs from new companies or more of the same from familiar faces?” and “What features are in the future for the modern Mac?”
Gore is the former vice president of content and editor-in-chief at Mac Publishing. Felier is the author of several Mac books, including “Mac OS X: The Complete Reference.” Pogue is an author and writer of the “State of the Art” personal technology column in the New York Times. Engst is an author and the publisher of TidBITs, one of the oldest and largest Internet-based newsletters.
MacMania is the upcoming seven-day ocean cruise, with ports of call in Alaska, that combines pleasure with 20 hours of conference courses. There’ll be conference tracks for both developers and end users.
The MacMania cruise — which is co-sponsored by Mac Publishing — will depart May 27 from Vancouver for Alaska’s Inside Passage. Room for MacMania is limited to approximately 400. Cruising prices are: inside cabins: US$1,050-$1,100 (depending on category) and outside cabins: $1,350-$1,550 (ditto). The conference price is $600 for the End Users Track and $1,250 for the OS X Developers Track. Port taxes would be additional and are $184 per person.
