Waiting for Woz

Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple for those of you in Rio Linda) is on campus to promote his new book iWoz.  The room he is scheduled to speak in hold about 100 people.  The speech is supposed to start in 15 minutes and it is standing room only already.  A little before 1:00 the room was half full.  Crazy.  I guess he really is an icon.  He's an interesting personality.  A total geek.  He spent much of his interview on This Week in Tech talking about a new blue laser he had purchased.  He participates on a Segway Polo team.  He's smart too.  I recall hearing him speak at one point about how he had the whole of the Motoroloa 6502 (the chip powering the Apple //) assembly in his head when he was coding for it.  Should be an interesting speech. I'll try to blog on it later.
