Steve Wozniak On Dancing With The Stars

Steve Wozniak Dancing With The Stars

I couldn’t resist the awkward screen grab. 😉

I knew it would be all over the web a matter of minutes after it aired. If he survives a round or two it will be due to fans not the judges. I think that will be more interesting than the actual dancing. Judges didn’t seem to impressed but regardless he says it was the “most incredible fun thing” he’s ever done. He’s got spirit. You can’t deny that.

He apparently hurt his leg today but still plans to dance. I wonder if this will help or hurt him.

While I’m on the topic I just noticed a few minutes ago San Jose Mercury News mentioned my last post.

Woz Is The Dancing Queen

Steve Wozniak Dancing With StarsHere’s something I’m really not sure I want to see. Steve Wozniak on Dancing With The Stars.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of The Woz. I’ve even got an autographed copy of iWoz.

I even know trivia like how ADB is likely the lastWoz designed technology technology to be replaced on Apple products since keyboards and trackpads in laptops still used ADB (and even ADB emulation from what I understand) until about 2004. That makes ADB about 18 years.

But I’m not sure what to expect here.

At least Woz is rather charismatic and a well known prankster. Who knows what he’s going to say or do. He’s a good storyteller (interesting rambler) but not sure if how much of that will show.

Despite the ugly images running through my mind, I’m still hoping he wins, since it would be by far the most amusing. I suspect he could easily become a fan favorite thanks to sites like Digg and Slashdot and Twitter which could drum up some audience votes. This could be interesting to see how social media can impact audience participation on TV shows.

I think Steve-O should be entertaining too. He generally is, for better or worse.

This should be fun. Who knows maybe this is going to pave the way for other tech celebrities like Bill Gates 😉 .

Woz In Spaceship Earth

Last week it seemed that Steve Jobs would appear in Epcot’s Spaceship Earth, while Woz would get shafted. Apparently that’s not the case. Gizmodo has some pictures of the new Spaceship Earth that feature a larger-boned scruffy fellow sitting in a garage. As a opposed to a lanky guy. So now it seems Woz is featured in Spaceship Earth.

The character also has a very similar shirt to that of a somewhat famous picture. Another thing Gizmodo didn’t even notice is that you don’t really see Jobs wearing glasses until sometime in the 80’s. In fact, I don’t think Jobs was really seen with glasses until after his first stint at Apple (most if not all pictures show him without). Wozniak on the other hand is seen with glasses dating as far back as the 70’s when this scene would have been taking place. This leads me to believe this character must indeed be Steve Wozniak.

Steve Jobs In Spaceship Earth At Epcot

According to a blog post at distant creations, a Steve Jobs like character will be in the newly remodeled Spaceship Earth at Epcot. Missing will be Steve Wozniak. The character apparently won’t be referenced by name. It should be noted Steve Jobs is a member of Disney’s Board of Directors and the largest shareholder.
