He gave us Apple, and now the technological wizard that’s Woz is bracing himself to take a bite out of New Zealand.
Few people that can be said to have revolutionised modern technology have been as impactful as the inventor of the personal computer and co-founder of Apple: Steve Wozniak (aka “Woz”). This August, the innovative and inspiring force that is Woz will land in Auckland for one night only.
With a hefty resume of accomplishments in the digital world (across Atari & Hewlett-Packard) and the humanitarian sphere (founding the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) to protect digital rights of internet users worldwide), the sweetest fruit of Woz’s laborious pursuits was Apple: the corporation that has revolutionised how we communicate, how we work, how we live.
Virtually no echelon of society has been unaffected by the work of Steve Wozniak; the device on which this is being read has his virtual fingerprints all over it, accomplished with Woz’s work ethic of pleasure over profit. This is a philosophy he has applied to each of his endeavours, and encourages all aspiring inventors to follow suit:
“The world needs inventors – great ones. You can be one. If you love what you do and are willing to do what it really takes, it’s within your reach.”
