Steve Wozniak: Hacker, Legend, Boomer

Harry McCracken:

The thing I find most striking about the idea of Woz appearing in a TV show about boomers is that it's a reminder of just how young the whole idea of personal computing is. A few major figures--including, sadly, Steve Jobs--are gone. But many more of the industry's founders are still very much with us. Including Wozniak, who turned 64 last month.

We should cherish them while they're still around --and as far as I'm concerned, there's no such thing as giving Woz too much credit for the revolution he helped to instigate.

 

I love the short video clip of Woz. It really captures his enthusiasm for technology.
