Woz in 2004
Did you know that in 2004, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak came to Lincoln Hills to speak to our user group? The club opened the presentation to all SCLH residents, and there were about 500 in attendance in the ballroom. The event was arranged by Ken Silverman, who knew Woz through his role as one of the founders of the first Apple user group, the San Francisco Apple Core. For a video of Woz's talk, which is about an hour and 20 minutes, CLICK HERE.
