I met the Woz!
I never had the privilege of meeting Steve Jobs, but it was really amazing to hear the other Steve, or “the Woz” speaking about his experience with Apple and life generally.
Steve had an amazingly humble view of his own success. He was frank about his lack of business knowledge and was happy with that – each to his strengths!
And despite Steve W. being worth a lot of money, he hadn’t let it change his joy in those things that had made him reach – solving technical problems.
He was most passionate and engaging when he told us firstly about the pranks he used to play at school and then about the details of the technical problems he solved. Often solving them in superhuman time.
He went back to teach technology at primary and then secondary school in the US, after he had made his money.
A privilege to hear him speak – where do I get some of that focus from?!
