Woz One

The one, the only, the Woz.
Leap Day only comes around once every four years and we wanted to make this February 29 extra special: Stephen Gary Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Inc. and the nicest guy in Silicon Valley, joins inThirty for our 29th episode! Woz reflects on the engineering philosophy that backed Apple’s early products, tells us how he feels about the iPhone and iPad, and gives his take on what the future holds for consumer electronics. Woz also dishes on cloud computing, SOPA, jailbreaking, science education, music, and much more.
This is the first of two episodes with Woz (he deserves more than 30 minutes, right?), our 30th episode, Woz Two, is a little kitschier than the first and will be posted soon.
By the way, Woz handily beat Chaim, Harry, and Justin at Tetris…blindfolded.
Thanks Steve!
