“We have a bunch of videos from the 30th anniversary of the Homebrew Computer Club, where Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and other technology pioneers came up with the ideas that led to the first personal computers,” Dan Farber writes for ZDNet.
• $666.66 seemed like a good idea: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak divulges the reasoning behind the infamous computer price for the first Apple computer.
• Demon typist: Woz reminisces about writing hexadecimnal codes. Former club president Lee Felsenstein and club member Allen Baum then praise Woz as the world’s fastest code typer. (Watch Woz repeatedly keep trying to grab the microphone back.)
• Apple was cheap, and on TV: Woz tells the Hombrew Computer Club 30th anniversary crowd about building Apple’s first computers on the cheapest parts and processors that could be found.
• Wozniak on Homebrew: The most important thing: Woz credits the Homebrew Computer Club meetings with teaching him much that was useful in creating Apple.
