It’s day three of FUZEnation in Waterloo Region.

FUZEnation is a four day technology and music summit.

Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak took the stage on Wednesday night. He says being exposed to his dad’s work manuals around the house led to an early and life long passion.

“No one would ever have any dream of ever seeing a computer back then and I stumbled onto it by accident…This is going to be my passion for life, it’s never going to be worth anything, nobody else is going to respect it, because other people in school don’t do it, but I love it.”

He says FUZEnation was always making things, from as young as six-years-old.

The Director of Engineering for Google Canada, Steven Woods will be among the speakers on Thursday.
