Yesterday we had a chance to meet Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple, at Zain’s Knowledge Conference 2013. Great personality, very friendly and seems like the person who would develop technology for development sake not for profit! He talked to us about innovation, and how he started off before apple, before getting a college degree, then about his venture in Apple and that some parts of the Steve jobs movie were lacking the truth or had misinterpreted information, seems he wasn’t 100% happy with Steve Jobs and he mentioned (borrowing ideas and not referencing them back – including the name – “Apple Computers”). Overall it was a great experience with a very humble human being.
Sitting listening to him made me realize that sometimes you should move on and actually build your ideas, they don’t all have to be 100% successful, you learn from experience which is what landed him a job in Hp before he had a college degree.
The tables were packed with Zain employees and some bloggers who had a chance to meet Steve Wozniak and individually take a photo with him in the end!
Here Steve was discussing how technology is changing ever so fast, maybe by the time ideas are thought out today for new products and devices, they can be replaced by other technologies that evolve ever so rapidly.
The host of the event asking Steve Wozniak questions was Mr. Hani Al Kukhun, Zain Kuwait’s COO.
This last photograph you would have seen on our instagram account!
