Steve Wozniak - Apple Co-Founder

Steve Wozniak - Apple Co-Founder at the eConcordia Summit 2009 in Montreal on September 10th, 2009. Steve Wozniak also spoke to students at the sold out event in Concordia University few hours later.

 

Broadly recognized for starting the Personal Computing revolution (hence known as 'Inventor of PC'), Steve Wozniak's achievements can be clearly guessed from the title of his autobiography : "iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It." Wozniak even received the National Medal of Technology in 1985 from Ronald Reagan, then President of the United States

 

His sense of humor mixed with geekiness could well be judge by this piece of conversation:

Koul : The first time I met you, it was the coldest temperature I had ever been in:

Koul : -40 Celcius.

Woz: Must have been University of Moncton,

Woz: but the temperature wasn't -40 degrees, I heard it was -40 Fahrenheit.

Koul : I am sure it was -40 Celcius

Woz : No, no , it was -40 Fahrenheit

Koul : Well, ..

Woz : How much is -40 Fahrenheit when converted in Celcius

Koul : -40 Celcius

(Laughter)
