That's right, Woz himself will come to Colorado Springs Friday, Feb. 7 for the Colorado Springs Business Journal's Celebrate Technology Reception, happening at 5:30 at the Pinery at the Hill.

Wozniak is best known, of course, as the co-founder of Apple. According to his bio on woz.org, he founded the company with Steve Jobs, and introduced the Apple I and II before leaving in 1985. Since then, he's earned 11 honorary doctor of engineering degrees, founded various charitable and technological organizations (he reportedly adopted the Los Gatos School District), dated comedian Kathy Griffin for a short time, and did the worm on Dancing with the Stars. For a video of that, and his his appearance The Big Bang Theory, click here. Lately though, he's in the news for his numerous speaking engagements around the country like this one.

Given, though, that everyone seems to work on Apples these days — it's the machine I'm using right now — he's entitled to share his experiences until kingdom come. Check him out in this 1984 video with Jobs and the rest of the Mac guys presenting the first Mac personal computer for the public.

Tickets for the event are still available, though going fast, and include the talk, appetizers and a drink, and music, starting at $35.
