Working with Woz was like working with the smartest person you’ve ever known kicked up a couple notches combined with a practical joker. The best times Woz and I had were not coding, but rather playing jokes.
I was not yet out of high school and immature; yet he was always willing to deal with my mood swings, and answer every technical question I gave him (and there were a lot!) He loved explaining things — I’ll never forget one evening at Denny’s when he explained how parsers and lexical analysis worked. He was never too busy to explain concepts that were new to me.
