    Not sure if anyone has posted this yet or not but just letting everyone know that Steve Wozniak is going to be on The Colbert Report on Comedy Central tonight:

    11:30p / 10:30c

    TONIGHT: Steve Wozniak, author, "iWoz: From Computer Geek To Cult Icon: How I Invented The Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, And Had Fun Doing It"

    For those of you without Comedy Central you can probably look it up on iTunes video tomorrow.

    Woz is weird. I totally didn't get his sense of humor. Poor Steve Jobs had to put up with that for years...

    He definitely seemed to be on a different "plane" of existence than Colbert.

    I have laughed my a** off to that cartoon for years. Was shocked to find that the word Thagomizer is used at the Smithsonian, and by paleontologist to describe various mechanisms of brute force. :eek:

    There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't

    I loved the whole metal business card bit, i'd be way too scared of becoming an enemy combatant to ever try to pull something like that :eek:

    God, it was hilarious. I think Colbert didn't exactly know what was going on. Woz enjoyed it way too much. But still, pretty damn hilarious. I love Woz. I'm going to go buy his book this week.

    first of all while that is binary it means nothing and second of all
    he only said maybe 6or7 numbers,

    maybye i was looking to far a hidden meaning while their wasn't one and forgot about colbert saying that before the interview.
