f8 Reception

When I watched the Andy Samberg comedy intro and obvious entrance by Mark Zuckerberg, I was struck by the strangely long delay before the audience began to applaud his appearance. I think of that now on the day after Steve Jobs passed away, and can’t help to compare their vastly different audience reactions when their own shows. Am I wrong in this? It really felt like people didn’t want to naturally clap but then joined in only after a few brave souls took the lead.
