Steve Wozniak: PC Alma Mater

iWoz, de autobiografie van Steve Wozniak, is op zijn minst intrigerend. Volgende passage toont misschien wel aan waarom ik Wozniak het ultieme voorbeeld vind van craftmanship.

Most people don’t think of an engineer as an artist, probably, because people tend to associate engineers just with the things we create. But those things wouldn’t work, they wouldn’t be elegant or beautiful or anything else, without the engineer carefully thinking it out—thinking how to create the best possible end result with the fewest number of components. That’s sophistication.

Enorm veel respect voor de mens.
