Woolly Mammoth just sent out an e-mail reminder that’s worth passing along: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will appear for a post-show discussion at the Aug. 4 performance of Mike Daisey’s controversial “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs.”
Daisey took heat earlier this year for exaggerations and fabrications about the working conditions faced by Chinese factory workers at Apple’s production plants. Wozniak, meanwhile, became the most visible face of the computer giant’s origins after Steve Jobs passed away in 2011. As an entrepreneur and occasional critic of the company he helped create, Wozniak should be able to offer some unique insight into many of the charges Daisey raises about the creation of today’s in-demand gadgets.
The remaining tickets for the 8 p.m. performance are $120. Read Woolly Mammoth’s press release after the jump:
“Wozniak was one of the Apple Computer, Inc. co-founders, along with Steve Jobs, Ronald Wayne, Mike Markkula, and others, who designed, developed, and marketed one of the first commercially successful lines of personal computers, the Apple II series. Wozniak and Jobs assembled the first prototypes of the Apple computer in Jobs’ bedroom and later in Jobs’ garage. In the 1970’s Wozniak created the Apple I and Apple II computers. Wozniak is credited with being the sole creator of the original Apple hardware, operating system, and circuit board designs. Wozniak’s machines and inventions are credited with influencing the personal computer revolution in the 1970’s. Wozniak co-founded Wheels of Zeus (WoZ, also his nickname) in 2001, to create wireless GPS technology in order to help the average person on the street find everyday things with ease.”
