i didn't actually vomit
Jason Chen, in the pre-game Gizmodo liveblog of the Apple announcement: "We’re still about 10 minutes away from the event starting. I wonder if the guys backstage are vomiting from nervousness. I would be."
I didn't actually vomit, but yes. That's the feeling. And thinking about it now makes my palms sweat and my stomach churn, a year and a half later. What got me through it was the support from the fantastic people at Apple, who I'm thinking about today.
