    Earlier today, Steve Wozniak spoke at Georgia State University. I went to see him and brought a QuickTake 150. I took four photos of the event with the camera. After transferring them from the camera using a PowerBook 3400 on System 8.5 (for the serial port) to a Powerbook G4 running 10.3.9 (for AppleTalk) to my current Intel Mac, I thought I would share them.


    More info on the event here:

    The University's site said that there would a book signing afterwards. I brought a copy of iWoz, but I was hoping he would agree to sign the camera. He was running out of time when I got to the front of the line and it was announced that he had stopped signing and was just taking pictures at this point. I was lucky enough to hear him speak, get a few pictures of him on an Apple relic, and then get my picture taken with him. It had been a good day no matter what.

    After I got my group picture taken, I started to walk off the stage. A girl who appeared to be managing the event saw my camera and said he would sign Apple artifacts. I owe her big for that and should have thanked her because at that point Steve agrees to sign it. He pointed out how it was the first camera with a serial port and that Apple wasn't the actual designer, but instead Kodak was. I was pretty dumbstruck at this point and just thanked him.

    Getting to see Woz speak, shake his hand, and sign an Apple camera my family has had since 1994 is a personal highlight. A big thanks to Woz and everyone at GSU for the event.
