Judging by all of the vendors press releases and the word on the street from my MacRoundtable friends, it appears that Macworld 2010 is a success, albeit without Apple.
Sure, not as many exhibitors as previous years, but it seems like the show has taken a turn more towards the new community. More and more hardcore mac fans who were just attendees a few years ago are now presenting. Take @macsparky, David Sparks. I was with him on the show floor a couple of years ago at our first Macworld Expo. This year he was teaching sessions. I think it's wondeful Macworld is focusing on the strong Mac community that has always been there and continues to move on without Apple. Sure, we miss ya Apple, but life goes on without you. At least this year it did.
