Google I/O live streams: Your front row ticket

Google will stream live its I/O keynote and over 50 developers sessions online.

So you are not one of the 5,500 attendees squeezing into San Francisco's Moscone Center for the sold out Google I/O 2013 conference. Join the club. The good news is Google is streaming Wednesday's three-hour keynote along with 50 developers sessions over the next two days. Even better news is that you can break for coffee whenever you like and skip searching for a reliable WiFi signal at the Moscone Center's food court.

The Google I/O 2013 developer conference kicks off  12pm ET/9am PT on Wednesday with the keynote speech. The conference runs from May 15 to 17. If a live stream isn't enough for you there are also ample Live Blogs from various Websites including one from ITworld's sister publication TechHive.com.

Okay, being virtually there is a weak substitute for rubbing elbows with Google developers. You also won't be able to lineup to get Google's Oprah-like swag giveaway. Last year it handed out an estimated $5.5 million in gear that included Nexus 7 tablet, Galaxy Nexus phone, Chromebox, and the ill-fated media streamer the Nexus Q. Who knows what Google will hand out this year. How about free Google self-driving Toyota Priuses? That's unlikely, but Google did tease its give-away with a picture of a pallet full of Chrome gear headed to I/O last week.
