→ John Siracusa on WWDC: The Lottery

A slightly different take than he had on ATP1:

Many more people want to attend WWDC than the conference can accommodate. There has been no shortage of interesting suggestions for how to fix this. Broadly speaking, WWDC has not changed in decades. Apple and its developer ecosystem, on the other hand, are radically different than they were just five years ago. Something has to give.

I think he also has a good, at least partial, solution:
