The man responsible for “kicking off the whole personal-computer revolution” and co-founder of Apple Steve Wozniak (aka “Woz”) will hit Auckland this month for one night only.

Woz will entertain, educate and inspire for one night in New Zealand this month. Expect Woz to tackle everything from his own life and career, to self-driving cars (“beta products shouldn’t have such life-and-death consequences”) and the predicted future of AI (machines becoming “our best, most trusted friends that know our own hearts and souls better than other humans”). At a time when technology is playing a large role in society, and the importance of privacy and digital rights are greater than ever, who better to hear from than the co-founder of one of the largest tech companies in the world?

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. His influence on Apple is immeasurable, with Woz described as “the mortal who soldered the chips, handwrote the code, and laid out the actual, technical vision for the personal computer”.

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.”
