The Wizard of Woz   posted by Razib @ 10/05/2006 09:23:00 PM

Steve Wozniak (inventor of the personal computer) was interviewed today on the radio show On Point. Nerds should check it out, he's a really interesting & entertaining fellow, though it seems he has some form of Asperger's (e.g., he keeps talking how he's just such a great engineer! All true of course, but a more socially aware person would cultivate a bit more false modesty). Also, In Our Time returned this week with a show about the Andalusian philosopher Averroes, who was such an influence on the Aristotelian Renaissance.
