WWDC’s not broken, but it could use some upgrades

John Gruber on fixing WWDC:

It occurs to me that Apple did make a major change to help those who don’t or can’t attend WWDC: they release the session videos remarkably soon after the conference ends. Watching the videos is not the same thing as being there (no labs, for one thing), but it’s a big improvement over years past, when the videos were released many months after WWDC was over.

This is great compared to the past years, but why not take it one step further?  Why not stream the sessions live?  So that people around the world can feel like they’re there without ruining the experience of actually BEING there.  This could even enhance the experience, sort of like watching a football game on a big screen TV.

Now, it might be a little more difficult to stream the readily available supply of free Odwalla they had at WWDC 2010… actually being there would still have its perks.
