Is "PC" now using a Mac?

    Newer Older

    I ran into John Hodgman at the TED opening party. I had hear through the grapevine that he is a Mac user in real life and really wanted an image of him using a Mac.

    So, I started looking for a Macintosh and found a French businessman (Jean-Sebastian) using his Mac at the party. I asked and he agreed that I could borrow his laptop for a few minutes.

    That when things went bad. I handed the Macintosh to John and took a few steps back to get the shot. John was so nice and assumed that I wanted it autographed. He whipped out a permanent marker and preceded to autograph the laptop. (OMG!) I froze and then he asked for my name! I replied “Jean-Sebastian,” As he wrote a brief personalized message…And I took the shot.

    So now I had to return to Jean-Sebastian with the signed laptop. Casually, I asked “Do you know of the Mac-PC advertisements?” He said with a smile “No”…with a curious expression on his face =(

    What a bummer =( I explained the situation and Jean-Sebastian was wonderful and said no worries. Deep down, I sort of wish he had been pissed and I had gotten to trade Jean-Sebastian a new Mac for his now autographed one!! What a great night!
