Tonight’s column will be very short. I’m exhausted and stuffed.
The exhaustion comes from starting my workday, as I got in the press line to wait (and wait and wait) to get into Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ keynote. Since the speech didn’t start until 9, it was a loooooong wait. But I got the chance to chat with some acquaintances, such as Rafi Guroian of EaseTechnologies and Dave Moser of Mac Design magazine.
The stuffed part comes from a magnificent evening of good and fellowship with John Wallace and Bob Leeds of Power On/Now Software. The food, at Trattoria Dell’Arte (900th 7th Avenue at 57th Street), was marvelous. But the conversation was even better.
In yesterday’s column I talked about some interesting New York hotels I’ve seen. MacCentral reader Mike Warren of Kimball Art Museum has another. He’s staying at 41st and Madison at a place called Library Hotel Each floor is based on the Dewey Decimal System, and then each room is a sub-topic for that floor.
“For example, I am on the 12th Floor (Religion) room 3 (The Occult), so they have about 30 books in my room on the occult, plus weird pictures on the wall,” Warren said. “Nice thing is they have free T-1 Access.”
That hotel I’ve gotta see.
