Apple Keynote Starting Soon -- Where to Read About It Live

Posted by Jeff Scott on June 7th, 2010

While I'll be attending the keynote on Monday morning, at the "center of the app universe", but we're not going to live blog it. We've tried to give you live coverage of the keynotes in the past, but lets face it, others do it so much better. They take a team and just kick butt doing it. Here are a few tips on where you can follow along with the keynote live. Who does it well and who does it in ways they shouldn't do it.

First, without a doubt, Ryan Block and gdgt cover it better than anyone else. Their servers rarely have problem with the load, and they post lots of great pictures. They must be really fast typers. [ watch it here: gdgt live ]

Other live sources include the usual spots: Engadget, MacRumors, Gizmodo(oops!), Ars Technica, TechCrunch.

Then there are other sources that give you good commentary and not just recite what is going on. One such source is Jim Dalrymple at The Loop. Watch there for some insightful thoughts.

In addition to the places above, if you really want to see or hear it or maybe even see it live, there are some pleces you can look. First, search Twitter for keynote stream or something similar and see if anyone is posting a link to a live stream of the event. While Apple doesn't allow it, it's impossible to stop. Someone in the audience of thousands will have a stream up on UStream, Qik, or one of the other live streaming services. Search those services to see what is popular at the moment and you'll likely bump into one.

After the keynote is over, and we've had some time to digest it, we'll be posting a summary of the announcements along with our take on them. Look for that late in the day, following the keynote.

If I can get a connection, I may post some images and notes to our Twitter stream during the event. But no guarantees on that. This should be an exciting day, let's get going!
