Around Cup 16, I was talking about 52 Cups with Todd, a friend at work when an idea hit him, "You should try to set up a meeting with Woz, the co-founder of Apple! I know he'd do it-in fact, I bet he'd even fly to Michigan."
"The Woz," co-founder of Apple, traveled up to Montreal, Canada, to accept an honorary doctorate from Concordia University. His message to science and engineering grads: Always strive for excellence and innovation, and don't let anything stand in the way of your dreams.
Wozniak ends his speech saying, "We have a lot of great problems in the world. Problems with resources, problems with humanity, problems with wars, and the solutions in my mind are all with engineers, mathematics, with figuring how to build things, create things, and change this world and improve it. That's your job. Thank you very much"

Jimmy, Seth Rogen and Steve Wozniak play a game where they take turns confessing to a random fact, then interrogate each other to determine who was telling the truth. Watch!

On Steve's birthday, Woz' wife Janet arranged to have a video created as a present for Woz.

Fifteen years ago, the science and technology website Slashdot anointed Steve Wozniak “the Geek God in whose shadow all others dwell.” Wozniak (who prefers being called Woz) is the technowiz who single-handedly invented the groundbreaking Apple I and II computers.
I could care less about hearing what a politician has to say. Hollywood bores me to tears. And I have no desire to meet whoever the latest rock star is (especially if the Bieber craze is still going on). Instead, my meaning of rock star is more in line with the old Intel campaign and Woz is, in my opinion, the Jim Morrison/Jimi Hendrix/Joan Jett/whoever-you-like rock star of the tech world
