Ask the AV Guy
Chris Eschweiler claims to be the AV guy for the SuperMeet [you're right, this is definitely getting very cable newsish -Ed] and though nobody met his asking price of a small tropical island (with submarine) to reveal what he knows about the SuperMeet, he did tweet:
Exporting logos for #SuperMeet. And there are just as many logos as there were a week ago. Huh. Funny, that. #dontbelieveeverythingyouread"Don't believe everything you read"...... hmmm...
Meanwhile, Philip Hodgetts, who knows a person or two involved with the SuperMeet, and maybe even some people at Apple, tweeted:
I can't reveal my source but Supermeet is definitely FCP X preview. Yes it's very unlike Apple and all happened at last minute
Meanwhile, the whole Kevin-Smith-getting-booted-from-the-program got a lot of mileage on Twitter, but Avid seems to have found a home for him.
We’re happy to announce that Kevin will be featured during an NAB General Session which is open to all. Join us on Wednesday morning at 9:00 AM in room S222 of the Upper South Hall. All you need to attend is an NAB Exhibit Badge or a SuperMeet badge.I'm sure he'll have some nice things to say about Apple [But what about poor Philip Bloom? He got booted too! -Ed]

Google Puts Things In Perspective
As important as all this SuperMeet stuff may seem to us, it's important to put things in perspective. In doing a Google search today for 'SuperMeet' the first item returned was titled Report: "Apple Launching New Final Cut Pro Next Tuesday," but the second item was: "Kevin Smith headlines NAB SuperMeet | MacNews" The third, fourth and fifth were about neither topic, but the sixth was "Filmmaker Kevin Smith Headlines 10th Annual NAB SuperMeet"
News travels slowly.
