Steve Jobs (L) and Steve Wozniak in 1977. Probably the only photo of Jobs in a necktie.

I’m amused that the Woz is going to appear on Dancing with the Stars.  Here are some pictures of him and Steve Jobs I took in 1977, the day that they announced the Apple II at the First West Coast Computer Faire.  The Woz is pretty much the geek’s geek, and has a great sense of humor.  But somehow, I just don’t see him as a great dancer.  Guess we’ll just have to see how he does.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he tries to automate his dance partner’s dress or something like that.

I spent about an hour and a half with Steve Jobs that day, talking about how he was going to compete with IBM and other amazingly grandiose things.  I went back up to Cupertino a few weeks later, but when I saw houses selling for $70,000, I decided going to work for them was out of the question (they had about 12 people in the company at the time).
