I didn’t really appreciate Macs till I learned about the history of the personal computer, which was really a personal experience since childhood for me. Starting from fifth grade I became Mr. Ogren’s student assistant because I was tech savvy. I was one of the first kids in the school district to be formally trained for the new PCs. A year earlier I went to the Philippines and fixed an old Windows 95 machine even my CS cousin couldn’t figure out (I was in the fourth grade then).
If you look at a picture I drew then„ it’ll show a crappy sketch of me and what I wanted to be when I grew up. Now this changed from fire fighter, pastor, movie director & other dream jobs throughout my childhood, but at one point in my life I wrote I wanted to be CEO of a company like Yahoo or Microsoft (I even drew a tie).
I love computers because they give me problems to solve, big or small, in and out of their immediate hardware and software environments — into the Internet, the social milieu, a global consciousness. So Woz and Jobs are two of my role models (I look forward to the resurrection of the latter at the next keynote :P). I remember how exciting it was to visit #1InfiniteLoop for the first time.

I went to war last night
I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent
Duckin’ every other blessin’, l can never see the message
I can never take the lead, I can never bob and weave
For my ***** that be letting ‘em annihilate me
And it’s evident I’m moving at a meteor speed
Finna run into a building, lay my body in the street
Keep my money in the ceiling, let my mama know I’m free
Give my story to the children and the lesson they can read
And the glory to the feeling of the holy unseen
Seen enough, make a ************** scream, “I love myself!”
