We’re back from Macworld/iWorld in San Francisco. As usual, it was a whirlwind. We participated in even more events than usual, talking with a large number of current (and future) customers, various members of the press, and art aficionados and authorities of all sorts. Here are some of the highlights:
- Our booth was packed. Macworld suggested only one person work the booth at a time, but we often needed two and sometimes three.
- While a year ago many of the discussions were on education (resulting in our Art Authority K-12 app), this year more were on museums, galleries, and individual artists. No doubt some of that had to do with the recent introduction of our Art Alert app.
- Questions and comments during Alan’s talk “Art Goes Digital” also focused more on individual artists and galleries.
- Alan was interviewed (twice!) on KGO/KFOG radio.
- Keeping with the overall museum theme, after the show ended, we were honored and privileged to be given VIP tickets to the amazing “Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings for the Maurithuis” exhibit at the de Young museum in Golden Gate Park. That exhibit was so eye-opening (literally) that it will be the subject of a whole blog post in the near future.
As usual, a good time was had by all. And we learned a whole lot in the process.
