Bloggers can’t blog at WWDC
Apparently bloggers cannot blog at their Worldwide Developer’s Conference, aka WWDC, in San Fransisco, according to Steve Rubel:
In the hall there are notices posted that say “Please ensure that your communications with others outside WWDC 2006, including your blogs, do not contain any Apple Confidential Information.” This raises an interesting question. Is information that is presented at a public forum bloggable? I am not a lawyer and I don’t play one on TV, but this seems somewhat draconian to me.
I really wish people would “get” blogging. Apple should be more savvy than that.

“I really wish people would â€œgetâ€? blogging. Apple should be more savvy than that.” – Yeah, what he said.
I thought that some (all?) of the sessions were covered under an NDA. If that is the case, I don’t see anything wrong w/Apple reminding people not to blog “Apple Confidential Information”.
Since when is WWDC a public forum? It is a private conference for Apple Developers and everyone there is under and NDA.
