Apple conferences big and small

Though Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference may be the big fish of Apple-related gatherings, a number of smaller conferences have sprung up over the past several years. I sit down with senior writer Lex Friedman, just back from the Úll conference in Dublin, Ireland to discuss these events and what they offer that Apple can't match.

Show Notes

In addition to the Úll conference, other events we mention include the Çingleton symposium in Montreal, Chicago's SecondConf, the UK-based NSConference, and the One More Thing Conference in Melbourne, Australia. Arguably the grandaddy of these smaller conferences was the late C4, which we covered in 2007, 2008, and 2009; it ceased operation in 2010. And then, of course, there's the long running Macworld/iWorld conference. (That's put on by IDG World Expo which, like Macworld, is owned by IDG.)
