An Evening with Steve Wozniak

“Our first computers were not born out of greed or ego, but in the revolutionary spirit of helping common people rise above the most powerful institutions.” Once upon a twentieth century, humanity was captivated by the foresight of science fiction writers and filmmakers. Those dignified, daunting, dreamy glimpses into an imagined future would soon become a reality with the turn of the information age, due in no small part to the contributions of Steve (“Woz”) Wozniak. In August of 2016, Australia will have the pleasure of being in the company of someone who can be said to have truly, literally changed the world. Among the many accomplishments for which Wozniak is renowned, two stand out above the rest: the inventor of the personal computer, and – along with Steve Jobs – the co-founder of Apple.

Digital disruption is now part of our daily existence. It is changing how we live, how we communicate, and is fast transitioning the face of business into a screen. In Australia, disruptive digital technologies are increasingly confronting traditional business models, are becoming less predictable, and are being adopted at a very fast pace.
