Death: Still alive and having fun.
Comments: Steve Wozniak is probably the famous person that I would most want as a friend. Although he is listed here due to his status as an author having written his autobiography iWoz,Wozniak is most famous as one of the cofounders of Apple Computers and the chief architect of the modern personal computer. Prior to Wozniak getting a keyboard and monitor to interface with a CPU arrangement simple enough to fit in a personal computer at a reasonable cost was problematic. His designs for the Apple I and Apple II computers enabled Apple to become a viable business, and even though he ceased active involvement with Apple in 1987, he has always maintained his status as an employee and shareholder.
