Steve Wozniak (of Apple fame) did a special tour of the Computer History Museum (external link) yesterday. I'm a docent there I and was invited to accompany the tour in case any questions came up that Woz couldn't answer (as if that would happen) and to give the press some private tours while Woz was doing individual interviews.

Gizmodo (external link) did one of the better writeups of the event, but my local paper (external link)also covered it and used one of my photos (external link)for the article. :cool:

As cool as the event was, though, the best part was at the end. I asked Woz if he would mind taking a picture with me and he agreed. I got one of the press photographers to take some shots with my camera and, as I was passing it over, Woz says "Ooh, the 5D Mark II. I love that camera."

So there you have it, folks. The inventor of the Apple 1, Apple][, Atari Breakout and so many other cool things is a 5D2 fanboy and owner... bw!
