Google I/O 2014 ticket registration begins; will use lottery system

As previously announced, Google has started taking registrations for tickets to its 2014 edition of its I/O developer conference. This year's event will use a lottery system to give out the actual tickets; people have until April 18th at 2 pm Pacific Time (5 pm Eastern time) to sign up for the lottery.

The Google Developer blog has a small hint of what will be discussed at Google I/O 2014:

While we aren't ready to share what’s up our sleeves just yet, we can share with you that we’re focusing on three key themes this year: design, develop and distribute--helping you build and prove your app from start to finish.

The blog also says developers will have more time this year at I/O to chat with Google employees and partners, and demo apps, in the "Sandbox" part of the conference. There will also be a "streamlined" conference schedule that will be revealed in May.

If people register for I/O but don't get picked to attend in person, the keynote and other parts of the conference will be live-streamed for them to watch remotely. Last year's keynote famously showed off Google Glass being used live by skydivers that dropped from a perfectly good plane, who parachuted down to the roof of the Moscone Center, filming their adventure all the way to the stage.

Umm, what? Did you think skydivers always dived from burning planes or something? :huh:

It was a perfectly good plane. Unfortunately, the pilot also parachuted off and the plane descended until it eventually crashed into the Google barge.
