Steve Wozniak at Gnomedex

The Gnomedex Geeks-Gone-Wild crowd loved this rare and brilliant presentation by Steve Wozniak, a true geek’s geek. His playing started with games and pranks, crystal-set radios, reading Popular Electronics. Then he met Captain Crunch and got into telco-busting Blue Boxes.

Woz wanted to be an HP engineer forever and never thought he’d start a company, but his friend, Steve Jobs, said, “Let’s sell it!” at every opportunity. Good thing he did, and good thing HP turned down Woz’s offer for the rights to build what would become Apple’s first computer. You’ll enjoy this — one of the best from Gnomedex 4.0.
