With Silicon Valley icon and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak set to speak at Atlantic Design & Manufacturing, a conference and expo event this June hosted in New York by Design News’ parent company UBM, I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to Woz a few times in recent weeks as we ready for his fireside chat keynote.

Woz says he’s an open book. Given that he answered every question thrown at him on our calls with truth and humor, I’d tend to agree. And, given that he actually wrote a book, New York Times bestseller “iWoz,” in which he shares details of how he went from computer geek to cult icon, really, he is an open book about his life’s failures and successes.

Still, there are some little-known facts about Woz that even the deepest tech historians and his biggest fans might not know. Flip through 8 of these on the following pages.

We can’t wait to see what Woz has to say about Apple, the worlds of engineering, and promising technologies when he takes the stage at Atlantic Design & Manufacturing on June 13, at New York’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Before UBM opens his chat up to audience Q&A, Design News will be on stage, asking Woz his thoughts. What would you like us to ask Woz? Chime in with your questions in the comments section below. And be sure to register for the event to see Woz live on stage.
