I like this blog post that Matt Alexander wrote after his first Macworld last year.

Twenty or thirty minutes after meeting some of my favorite writers, we were sprinting across a train platform like it was normal. Hours (hours) later we were sitting on the Cupertino campus, chatting about life, kids, and technology. On the train home, I opened Instagram and saw that Shawn Blanc had posted a picture of Ben Brooks and I. Perhaps this all sounds very run of the mill to you, but it was truly explosive to me.
