Here I'll be posting news from the WWDC Keynote Address minutes (maybe seconds) after it rolls out of Stevie's mouth. And then (like BOOM!) you can all post your reactions. The format will be as close to one-liners as we can get them, so subscribe to this thread and you'll be sure to stay abreast of the latest and greatest.

We are also collecting feeds from many different sources for WWDC and displaying the results in #WWDC on irc.macspeak.net with your IRC client or use our forum's java client.

Just to be clear, we'll be pulling information from most of those "live" sources in order to get the clearest possible picture for those of you keeping score at home. It'll be as close to live as you can get without being there. :) We did it this way last year and it seemed to work out well.

Maybe next year we'll actually send a mole to WWDC. :D

If done on the IRC its faster and you don't have to refresh every couple of seconds.
(A transcript could be copied here for reference)

My problem with IRC is the campus blocks it at the gate... =(

But I could take an extended lunch and watch from home? It's at 1:00pm here.

You can still be on IRC and comment as it happens - but not everyone has access to or likes using IRC.

Ditto on the bingo shoutout - although i think if it was heard on the video the apple engineers will edit it out before publishing it.

52 minutes to go...

Yeah, I'm sitting in the ArsTechnica IRC channel. They've got a guy messaging back live from in the conference. I think their servers are maxed out with users though. :D
