Steve Wozniak: Technology & Social Revolution | LAI

TED Talk: Technology & Social Revolution | LAI


In this video, Steve Wozniak, one of the founders of Apple, discusses technology and the social revolution. We are born curious and when we go to school, we are taught rules, are regulated, and our curiosity to learn everything is inhibited - you can only learn what is in this class with every other student. We're taught that intelligence is having the same correct answer as everyone else in your class. We learn lots of facts and methods but not really how to think for yourself and come up with your own ideas - which is the heart of innovation.

A Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for more than thirty years, Steve Wozniak has helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products the Apple I and II and influenced the popular Macintosh. In 1976, Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple Computer Inc. with Wozniak’s Apple I personal computer. The following year, he introduced his Apple II personal computer, featuring a central processing unit, a keyboard, color graphics, and a floppy disk drive. The Apple II was integral in launching the personal computer industry.
