What You Can Learn from MacWorld
The 2009 MacWorld Conference and Expo runs from January 5-9. "Who cares?" you say...well, you should, and here's why.
As always, participants will be able to meet new people, share stories, access hundreds of Mac products and services and attend presentations, conferences and demonstrations galore. But the thing that makes this expo different from years past is that its Apple’s last.
Not the last Macworld, necessarily, but the last time Apple will participate. And without Apple there to deliver their inspiring keynote presentation and show off cool new technology, it’ll be the last one to attract so many developers and enthusiasts.
What can we learn from all this? Why, the fact that all things must come to end, of course. It’s all impermanent—everything. The sooner we realize this, the better we’ll be able to accept whatever life presents calmly and coolly.
So while it may not seem like a big deal to you that Apple is out at MacWorld, there are probably things in your life that are ending or have come to an end recently. Take stock of how you’re feeling about that. If there are unresolved feelings, take the time to work on clearing them up. If you’re ready to blaze ahead, good for you! Learning to deal with the impermanence of life makes every day a bit easier to deal with.
