I’ll say that this is a somewhat informal interview, but that’s not meant as a criticism. Some people have this endearing gift where you just love to hear them talk, and Steve Wozniak is one of those people (at least for me).
Wozniak’s unflappable enthusiasm carries things forward, and we learn little bits of Apple history along the way. At one point he mentions his early shyness, and how demoing his projects at the Homebrew Computer Club was the only time he felt comfortable talking to other people. Having seen more than a few shy people come out of their shell at MakerFaire, it reminds me how much engineering can provide a bonding opportunity — first, perhaps, between parents and children, and later with the wider world.
Good news for those of us who don’t like sports. 🙂
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
