An Evening with Steve Wozniak


An Evening with Steve Wozniak


An Evening With Steve Wozniak
A Think Inc. event, brought to you by Vector, Newstalk ZB, The New Zealand Herald and Loop
7pm Tuesday 23rd August
ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre, Auckland

He gave us Apple, and now the technological wizard that’s Woz is bracing himself to take a bite out of New Zealand.

Few people that can be said to have revolutionised modern technology have been as impactful as the inventor of the personal computer and co-founder of Apple:Steve Wozniak (aka “Woz”). This August, the innovative and inspiring force that is Woz will land in Auckland for one night only.

With a hefty resume of accomplishments in the digital world (across Atari & Hewlett-Packard) and the humanitarian sphere (founding the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) to protect digital rights of internet users worldwide), the sweetest fruit of Woz’s laborious pursuits was Apple: the corporation that has revolutionised how we communicate, how we work, how we live.

Virtually no echelon of society has been unaffected by the work of Steve Wozniak; the device on which this is being read has his virtual fingerprints all over it, accomplished with Woz’s work ethic of pleasure over profit. This is a philosophy he has applied to each of his endeavours, and encourages all aspiring inventors to follow suit:

The world needs inventors – great ones. You can be one. If you love what you do and are willing to do what it really takes, it’s within your reach.”
