I’ve always wanted to wait in line for an iPhone… okay, that’s not true at all, but shortly after hearing about Steve Jobs’ death last week, I headed down to our nearby Apple store and actually found the experience pretty moving. The iPhone has changed so many things in my life; my art, personal communication, and even my career have all been tied into this pocket camera-puter-maphone.
I’ve never camped out in a line before, so I wanted to try it once for the experience, especially since I know my friend Reed will be joining me… but I wanted to take the experience one extra step and try to add something back to the experience. So here’s what I’m thinking; dance parties, iPhone photography, workshops, free coffee, and all night portraiture sessions. I’ll have some light gear with me, a backdrop, and some music gear. If you’d like to camp out with our small group, be at the Apple Store at 10pm tonight 10/13. Sharp!
Doc’s list of workshops and events (subject to change):
10pm – get in line
11pm – iPad dance party!
1am – I dunno… sleep probably
5am – iPhone portraiture. I’ll be taking photos and sending them out as Postagrams
6-7am – Coffee arrives? (I’ll try to have enough to share)
6:30 – Interlacer workshop (featuring Jeremy Brooks, the app’s creator!)
7am – Decim8 workshop
7:30 – Hipstamatic workshop
8am – I’m-a get mah phone!!!!

editors note: previously titled this post Occupy Stockton Street, but apparently I wasn’t charming and/or tongue-in-cheek enough to pull that joke off. Probably should have used an emoticon
