"Spend less time being interesting and more time being interested in people and the world" - Shira


I recently stopped by the the L.A. Dance Academy for a little tête-a-tête with the Woz himself. Now mainstream folks have recently been introduced to my favorite geek on Dancing with the Stars, but he's been a hero of mine forever as the co-founder of Apple. I must say, he is the most down to earth and cool guy ever. He radiates positive energy and is just friendly with everyone. Lastly, he takes pride (and I would too if I founded Apple) in being a geek. Before the interview he told me how dedicates every March to touring high schools around the country to speak to students and judge their robotic competitions. That rocks!

FYI- This was the first time I used this HD flipcam for an interview. I typically use my Nokia N95, which I've become an expert at framing myself on and I've noticed isn't as easy with the flipcam.

This is the raw cut- almost 15 minutes long. I know that length is practically illegal in the online video world, but what the hey! He dished about everything from Dancing with the Stars, being the ultimate geek, what's next on the web and finally gave me a little parting gift. If you're a fan and supporter of Wozniak, you'll definitely enjoy!
