Tech: The tech personality 3: Steve Wozniak

I read a very interesting extract today from a new book by Steve Wozniak, the bloke who designed and built the original Apple computers.

It gives an insight into the type of mind behind some innovative technology.

With the caveat that it's an autobiography, he sounds like a very gentle, down-to-earth person, whose passion is ideas. (Who can argue with that?)

Of course, cleverness or talent does not of itself win out. Otherwise, all the top selling music, films and books would be masterpieces.

Behind successful businesses are marketing or business talents - and that's where Steve Jobs came in.

Here's a link to Woz' web site. The book is iWoz.

I thought you might be interested in hearing about my debut documentary on Silicon Valley, called In Search of the Valley. It features Woz and many other Apple / Silicon Valley legends.
