Steve Wozniak autographed my Macintosh Portable.

This is my backlit Macintosh Portable computer.


On 18 March 2003, the Activities Board brought Steve Wozniak to CMU to introduce the guest of honor, Kevin Mitnick. (I myself would have preferred a reciprocal arrangement.) Woz made his introduction in under ten minutes, and Kevin spoke and fielded questions for well over two hours. I waited with my Portable until most of the questions were over; at last, I flagged Woz down. He sat down beside me and admired the Portable, saying "this is a great machine," and then graciously agreed to autograph it. What a guy!
