Following MacCentral’s Wednesday news about satellite simulcasts of next Monday’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote address happening at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor and University of Wisconsin Madison campuses, we’ve received word of several more events, too.
On Monday, June 23rd, starting at 10AM PT, Apple CEO Steve Jobs will take the keynote stage of Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference to address attendees. WWDC is always a crucial event for Mac developers, but this year has been of particular interest: Apple has noted that it’ll be the first chance that most people will get a chance to see “Panther,” the code-name of the next significant update to Mac OS X, due out later this year. Speculation has run rampant about what else Apple might show at WWDC, as well.
Attendees of Ohio University’s Athens campus will be able to watch Steve Jobs’ WWDC keynote campus-wide, thanks to Ohio University’s CATVision cable television system. Viewers anywhere on campus can tune into channel 64 and watch the event as it happens.
The University of Kansas’ Tech shop will host a WWDC simulcast event from 12-2PM, located at the KU Computer Center’s auditorium. Two Apple reps will also be on-site — call 785.864.0100 for information, or visit the Web site.
The Winona State University of Winona, Mn. has its own Macintosh User Group (MUG). The Winona State University MUG is hosting a live feed of Steve Jobs’ keynote from 12-2PM CT at the Kryzko Commons Student Union area.
If you’re nowhere near any of these campuses or the ones we mentioned yesterday, there still may be hope. MacCentral has received reports from readers who have confirmed that some Apple Stores will be showing the keynote address live from their own theater areas, so if there’s one near you, it might be worth giving them a call to see if they plan to show the event. Not all Apple Stores have theaters, however, and not all theater-equipped Apple stores may be able or willing to show the event, so please make sure to call ahead before you make the trip on Monday.
Some independent Apple resellers may also be capable of getting the transmission, so if there’s a Mac dealer in your area who has done WWDC coverage before, it may be worth getting on the phone with them to find out if they have anything planned.
