Greg Packer won't be the only person getting attention for camping out to buy the iPhone. Blogger Robert Scoble has announced he'll be camping tonight at the Palo Alto Apple Store. The blogger/interviewer conceives it as "a PR person's dream [Sic] to have me as a captive audience"; of course, it's also a dream scenario for Scoble: free press, blog hits, and his work comes to him while he sits waiting for his new toy. Although supplies are likely to be constrained and demand high, camping out for the iPhone has less to do with being first to own the latest gadget than about getting attention and feeling like you belong to a community (of unwashed obsessives who don't need to go to work).
