What in life is not only engaged Steve Wozniak – the inventor, developer and co-founder of Apple. But to be a professor he would never ever.
Now – have to. And not in the United States, and on another continent. In Australia.
It is known that the legendary “Woz” agreed to teach at the University of Technology Sydney. For which he was awarded the title of associate.
This post he occupied for the first time officially. Why? For students of the famous Magic Lab.
This research laboratory is part of the local faculty of engineering and information technology.
During one of his recent visits Steve was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere prevailing in the campus. And robots. So he did not give up the honor to communicate regularly with young professionals.
The most important thing – it does not need to move to live in Sydney. “Lectures” Wozniak gives thanks to telepresence devices. Capabilities of modern video enough to share with the students experience, give advice, discuss ideas and even jokes.
Obviously, good sense of humor helps to “novice” teacher. Employees of the university have awarded him the titles like “the coolest man in the universe” and others. So successful he was able to establish contact with the audience.
The university is very positive attitude to what is happening. Better mentor for young talents is difficult to imagine. The man, true innovation and creativity, can achieve great things. Steve – a vivid example.
