I so clearly remember him telling me that engineering was the highest level of importance you could reach in the world, that someone who could make electrical devices that do something good for people takes society to a new level.2
The dream of building a personal computer was sparked for Wozniak when his father showed him an article about the original ENIAC computer. The article speculated about computer technology reaching “a point where anyone could buy a computer and put it in your house and learn how to use it yourself. I thought that would be just the best thing, and that was The Dream . . . the single force that drove me for years afterward.”3 A zest for laughter also infused Wozniak’s life. He believed that “[i]n my head, the guy who’d rather laugh than control things is going to be the one who has the happier life.” In high school, Wozniak created the very first Dial-a-Joke service in the Bay Area, a feat he jokingly says he would rather be known for than for having created the first personal computer.
