    We are thrilled to announce that VentureBeat will be kicking off 2012 by co-hosting a special event on Jan 5, focused ostensibly on disruption in the enterprise.  But one of the real reasons we’re doing this is to throw a massive Holiday party. Among other things, we’ll feature an on-stage demonstration by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple and currently chief scientist at Fusion-io, which is helping underwrite this event. We’ll follow that up with a blowout party: It’s basically a New Year’s party and open to anyone in the tech community of entrepreneurs, developers, press and investors.

    Like all Apple user groups around the world (Apple computer clubs), the members of the Apple Corps of Dallas were collectively and personally saddened at the passing of Steve Jobs. We dedicated our October 2011 meeting to sharing our memories and favorite stories about him and his life. There are two Steve's in Apple's history and it is hard to separate their lives. So, as part of our meeting honoring Steve Jobs, my tribute video includes a little known story of an experience that cemented their relationship. In fact, Steve Jobs says that without this experience there would have been no Apple Computer Company.

    "His name is Steve. He likes to do pranks like you do, and he’s also into building electronics like you."

    When Bill Fernandez introduced Steve Wozniak to Steve Jobs, he unwittingly changed computing history. The two were friends almost immediately, each impressed with the other's intelligence and abilities, and would go on to form Apple in 1976.

    But before they did that, they played some awesome pranks around their hometown, both alone and as a team.
