I'm getting several calls and e-mails from readers asking if Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will be making any speeches or public appearances in Seattle today. Turns out he's on the road to Portland with his god-daughter. They're going to see "Larry the Cable Guy," a comedy show. From there he'll be flying home.
If you were at the University Village Apple store Thursday, you might have seen him. His god-daughter, University of Washington student Julie Roebuck, used to work there and wanted to introduce Woz to her co-workers. I would have loved to see that but was in the office writing this story and this Q&A on Wozniak, which ran in today's paper.
Some UW students stayed after Wozniak's speech Thursday to talk to him. They admired his watch, a large contraption on his wrist that contained vacuum tube parts. When he rotated his wrist a certain way, digital numbers would glow and show the time.
"That's tight, man," said one student.
"I know," Wozniak said.
