Computer-industry icon visiting with students 4 p.m., Jan. 15 in Lesley’s Washburn Hall
Tuesday, January 07, 2014
Wozniak, popularly known as “Woz,” will be speaking and taking questions in an event open exclusively to Lesley students, faculty and staff at 4 p.m., Jan. 15, in the Washburn Hall auditorium on Lesley’s Brattle Campus. (Attendees should be prepared to show their Lesley ID card before entering the hall.)
Wozniak, both individually and through his business partnership with the late Steve Jobs, revolutionized personal computing, inventing the Apple I computer within a year of leaving the University of California at Berkeley.
The computer industry icon’s visit to Lesley precedes his appearance at the sold-out Boston Speakers Series, a subscriber series of lectures by newsmakers and other notables, in Boston’s Symphony Hall and sponsored by Lesley University.
Called one of Silicon Valley’s most creative engineers, and a noted philanthropist for more than 30 years, Wozniak was awarded the National Medal of Technology by President Ronald Reagan in 1985, and was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame in 2000. He authored a New York Times bestselling autobiography “iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon.”
Wozniak’s appearance is being recorded and televised by the cable news and public affairs channel C-SPAN, and students are invited to ask questions in this forum.
“The love in my life is starting small companies with small groups of friends,” Wozniak said. “Bringing new ideas out and trying to build them.”
For more information about Wozniak, please read the Boston Speakers Series “Professor’s Prologue” written by Dr. Robert McGrath, assistant professor of management at Lesley.
