Steve Wozniak Keynote

Steve Wozniak's Key Accomplishments Include . . .
If you're able to read this, you have Steve Wozniak to thank. A Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for the past three decades, Steve Wozniak helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple's first line of products, the Apple I and II, and influenced the popular Macintosh. For his achievements at Apple Computer, Wozniak was awarded the National Medal of Technology by the President of the United States in 1985, the highest honor bestowed on America's leading innovators.

On April 1, 1976, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak formed Apple Computer. Wozniak quit his job at Hewlett Packard and became the vice president in charge of research and development at Apple. The Apple I was priced at $666.66. Jobs and Wozniak sold their first 100 computers to a local dealer. In 1980, Apple went public and made Jobs and Wozniak multimillionaires.
In 2000, Steve Wozniak was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame and was awarded the prestigious Heinz Award for Technology, The Economy and Employment for "single-handedly designing the first personal computer and for then redirecting his lifelong passion for mathematics and electronics toward lighting the fires of excitement for education in grade school students and their teachers."

Making significant investments of both his time and resources in education, Steve Wozniak "adopted" the Los Gatos School District, providing students and teachers with hands-on teaching and donations of state-of-the-art technology equipment. Wozniak founded the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and was the founding sponsor of the Tech Museum, Silicon Valley Ballet and Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose.

In 1982 and 1983, Steve Wozniak sponsored two US Festivals to celebrate evolving technologies; they ended up as a combination technology exposition/rock festival, featuring such acts as U2, David Bowie and Van Halen, and bringing together music, computers, television and people.
Steve Wozniak is also a published author with the release of his autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon.
