Steve Wozniak has a posse
Do you know why everyone likes Steve Wozniak? He's the prince that never wanted to be a king. He's the cool hacker nerd that just wanted to make computers and made his fame and fortune in the process. Most importantly; he's not a crazy whacked-out elitist jerk. He is, however, totally crazy in a lovable kind of way.
Hardy Green from Business Week has a preview interview on The Woz's new memoir: I Woz: How I Invented the Personal Computer and Had Fun Along the Way. The book covers his long history of over the top practical jokes, Apple's environment as it matured into a juggernaut, and the accidental way that he became the foremost hacker in the personal computer revolution.
I'm looking forward to reading it as there are few men who have encouraged my amateur engineering like The Woz.
