On December 11, Steve Wozniak, the man behind the design of Apple’s first line of products and co-founder of Apple Computer, spoke to more than 800 VMUG members at the Kansas City User Conference.

Like most schools in Silicon Valley, Homestead High School – alma mater to Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak -- offered students a plethora of elective classes to round out their mandatory curriculum. While autoshop and woodwork were both popular choices, one elective in particular sparked the creative interest in Cupertino’s kids, and that was John McCollum’s electronics class.

In this interview, he talks about his biggest career challenges, what his typical day looks like, what he admired most about the late Steve Jobs, the biggest trend in technology right now and his top pieces of career advice.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is set to appear as a playable video game character alongside the likeness of "Machete" star Danny Trejo in an upcoming iOS title called Danny Trejo's Vengeance "Woz with a Coz."

[ Video] Woz, as he is known, was a co-founder of Apple along with the late Steve Jobs. Unlike Steve Jobs, Wozniak is still alive and has remained engaged with and occasionally willing to discuss public policy issues relevant to computing and the internet.

I got to do a very cool thing last week: introduce — and then lead a question-and-answer session with — Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. It was part of the Distinguished Speakers Series, and the event took place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

An hour-long “Conversation with Steve Wozniak” will highlight a luncheon to launch Palm Beach State College’s technology initiative.
The luncheon takes place Jan. 31 at the Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion and introduces the school’s STEAM initiative. The five-year drive aims to increase the number of skilled professionals in science, technology, engineering and math, the so-called STEM fields. The foundations’ proposal also includes the arts.
