This afternoon, we were blessed with a great keynote talk by Woz (co-found of Apple Computer). He spoke energetically and entertainingly of his life with electronics and technology. We heard many stories of the toys he played with, the pranks he played, and the people who influenced his obsession with electronics.

Steve is an inspiration. We need more people like him in this field. he's the Feynman of the computer industry.

His talk was followed by a panel discussion on Digital Lifestyle. It's clear that there's little agreement on what a digital lifestyle really is, what gadgets we need, and how gadgets of the future are going to work. Lots of talk on good vs. bad convergence--again, little agreement.

The evening was rounded out by dinner, a band, and much socializing.

I don't think I'd put Woz in the same league as Feynman. What has Woz done that's of consequence since leaving Apple, other than being part of the circus act that includes Mitnick, Captain Crunch, Jello Biafra and others?
