Join us tomorrow for WWDC coverage — Here and on FriendFeed

NOTE: GrowthBeat is less than 2 weeks out! VentureBeat is gathering the best and brightest in modern digital marketing to help declutter the landscape, simplify the functions, clarify the goals, and point the way to success. Get the full scoop here, and buy your tickets while they last.

Tomorrow is the start of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco, Calif. Between the announcement of the 3G iPhone, the launch of the first 3rd-party native applications for the iPhone platform and the inevitable curveball Apple chief executive Steve Jobs has up his sleeve, the event promises to be huge. In fact, the event is sold out for the first time ever.

VentureBeat will be on the scene covering Jobs’ keynote address live tomorrow at 10 AM PST. If you’d like to follow along you can do so on venturebeat.com where we’ll have stories for the news at it happens — but we’ll also be updating live in our special VentureBeat WWDC Livestream room on FriendFeed. Consider this our “One more thing” — those last second announcements Jobs usually includes in his keynotes.

Given how often we write about Apple and FriendFeed it only makes sense to merge the two for this event. Plus, you never know how another instant update service, Twitter, is going to react to such events — though, it claims to be prepared. This also seems like the perfect usage for FriendFeed’s newer “Rooms” feature.

Again, coverage begins tomorrow at 10 AM PST.
