Macworld Day 3: Celebrity Sightings at Macworld!

It’s been an interesting couple of days at Macworld – more because of the people I’ve met at the conference than anything else. Today, I was scheduled to do 4 theater sessions at the Adobe booth, along with several customer meetings, so the day flew by.

It seems like Macworld attracts all kinds of people – even celebrities. While there were no Brangelina, Tomkat or Britney sightings, I did see Richard Dreyfuss (near the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus) and Sinbad (near the Apple booth). I didn’t have a chance to talk to Mr. Holland’s Opus, but I did get to listen to Sinbad rave about Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. I didn’t realize that the guy was so into technology, and specifically, Adobe technology! To top it off, he was quite entertaining, so definitely one of the day’s highlights.

My encounters at the conference inspired me to try my hand at the ol’ Six degrees of Kevin Bacon game.. and thanks to IMDB.com and Google, I found a link!

  • Richard Dreyfuss was in Stand By Me with Kiefer Sutherland
  • Kiefer Sutherland was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon
  • Kevin Bacon hosted Saturday Night Live when Phil Hartman was a cast member
  • Phil Hartman worked with Sinbad in Houseguest.

The conference has also been good in terms of seeing some of the Adobe celebrities – John Nack (Photoshop PM), Richard Galvan (Flash PM), Chris Orwig (photographer extraordinaire and all around nice guy) and some others.
