Ask Steve Wozniak Anything

hkb Re:Why Freemason? (612 comments)

Woz answers that in iWoz -- the details of which can be read on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IWoz. I don't think he's active anymore.

Saddam was a shitbag, but that doesn't mean we need to lower our moral standards and professionalism.
