Apple’s Co-founder Wozniak Honored With an Award of President of Armenia, Armenian Geeks – a Meeting With a Legend
The date 11/11/11, which was waited for with breath-hold in many countries of the world, in Armenia was marked with a meeting with the legendary creator of the first personal computer and co-founder of Apple Company – Steve Wozniak. Wozniak received the annual Global Award of the President of the Republic of Armenia for Outstanding Contribution to Humanity Through IT. The award was granted for the second time. Last year it was awarded to Intel Chairman Craig Barrett.
During the two-day visit to Yerevan, Wozniak met with the President and Prime Minister of Armenia, as well as with IT sector representatives, students of the Yerevan State University of Architecture and visited the memorial to Armenian Genocide victims.
“Whatever you do, you should enjoy your job,” this simple phrase could become a slogan of the meeting held in Yerevan, November 11, between one of the gurus in the world of technology and the Armenian youth. In the crowded hall of the “Marriott Armenia” both students and IT experts were interested in the history of the well-known Apple Company, Wozniak’s life experience, as well as in the cooperation between him and his namesake – Steve Jobs.
