Meet Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and ask him your questions!
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will visit Case Western Reserve University and engage in a conversation with students as a prelude to Case School of Engineering’s Innovation 2015. “Creativity and Innovation: A Live Q&A with Steve Wozniak” is this Saturday, Oct. 4, from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. at the Tinkham Veale University Center in the Kelvin + Eleanor Smith Foundation Ballroom.
A Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for more than 30 years, Steve Wozniak has helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products, the Apple I and II, and influenced the popular Macintosh. In 1976, Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple Computer, Inc., with Wozniak’s Apple I personal computer. The following year, he introduced his Apple II personal computer, featuring a central processing unit, a keyboard, color graphics, and a floppy disk drive. The Apple II was integral in launching the personal computer industry.
Wozniak currently serves as Chief Scientist for Fusion-IO and is a published author with the release of his New York Times best-selling autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon, in September 2006. He has appeared on such television shows as “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and “The Big Bang Theory.”
