I/O 2011 is coming...

Finally arrived in San Francisco!

The countdown for Google I/O 2011 says 2 days, 15h 37min, can't wait. Even though almost everything Google does attracts loads of attention I was so suprised that the event sold out in an hour. Being the only one at Nansen able to grab a ticket I'll try to blog as much as time and wi-fi access permits. Found a nice spot in the sun at Union Square with free wifi and Anchor steam on the menu so I figured I'd enjoy the sun and write a blog post.

Going through the available sessions for this year my first thought was, why not a 3 day event? So much interesting stuff, so little time. Most of the sessions I'm planning on attending are in the android track, but I found alot of interesting stuff within
the Commerce, Geo, APIs, well the list goes on.
Will be interesting to see what announcements that will come out of the keynotes.
* New Chrome OS hardware and a release date?
* Android Ice Cream and the merge with Honeycomb and Google TV?
* New hardware partnerships for phones, tablets, google-tv?


Will also be attending an Android Developer mixer hosted by Adobe the night before IO. Should be great fun, and the speaker lineup look very promising. Will have to try and find some event to attend on wednesday aswell, have to soak up as much as possible during my stay here. :)
