“iWoz” is the Great Autobiography of Steve Wozniak by Steve Wozniak with Gina Smith

"iWoz" is the Great Autobiography of Steve Wozniak by Steve Wozniak with Gina Smith

There’s something to be said for telling your story in your own words. In 2006, Steve Wozniak reached that point at age 55.

In his own words, he wrote, “I think it’s time to set the record straight. So much of the information out there about me is wrong. I’ve come to hate books about Apple and it’s history so much because of that. For instance, there are stories that I dropped out of college (I didn’t) or that I was thrown out of the University of Colorado (I wasn’t), that Steve and I were high school classmates (we were several years apart in school) and that Steve and I engineered those first computers together (I did them alone).”

In constant pursuit of “The New New Thing”

The New New Thing by Michael Lewis

“The New New Thing” by Michael Lewis is a fantastic trip through the history of Silicon Valley, and beyond that it’s the story of Jim Clark.

He starts by stating that “this book is about a search that occurs on the frontiers of economic life.” But it is also about the history of economics and the technological advancement that brings about growth and change, not just for economics and the market but for everyone.

Significance of Aerosmith’s live 1998 internet concert overlooked online

Recently, I was on the Our Liner Notes podcast talking about first concerts. Since mine was Aerosmith on their Nine Lives Tour, I thought it fitting to bring up another first concert I had. So in preparation I did some research on the first concert I watched online back in 1998…

That was the beginning of the rabbit hole. There’s isn’t much the internet has to say about this concert, leaving me to wonder why there isn’t more on this should-be-groundbreaking concert. In the wake of it’s absence, I’ve attempted to find out a little more about it and share that information and my thoughts.

Declassifying the Internet

Agent Palmer presents: ‘Declassifying the Internet’

Let me start by saying that I am by no means an expert. In fact, when it comes to the Internet, I’m not sure there are any “experts.”

But I do have a sound grasp of knowledge surrounding the concepts and tools available through the world wide web. With that knowledge, I would like to introduce you to my “Declassifying the Internet” series.
