Steve Wozniak-Co-founder, Apple

At the Homebrew Computer Club, he passed out copies of his original designs. With Steve Jobs, he began working on a commerical model and in 1977, the Apple II made its debut. Three years later, Apple went public. The 30-year-old ''Woz'' was suddenly worth millions and became a symbol of free-wheeling nerd enterprise and ingenuity.
