Steve Jobs stepping away from MacWorld!

So here’s something strange, Steve Jobs is not doing the keynote at MacWorld! This is very strange considering this is where he would typically make major announcements. Also MacWorld is a huge deal for Apple lovers around the world.

This is definitely a disturbing trend, first Novell cancels BrainShare and now this. Is this a sign of things to come? Will we see more and more large conferences getting cancelled in favour of online webinars and communities? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the online stuff, but I still think there is a place for conferences where people get to look at products and interact with each other in the real world.

I hope the rest of the industry doesn’t start going this way, this could be a sign of our tough economic times hitting the IT world.
