Got to know Silicon Valley Comic Con over dinner with Steve Wozniak and Nolan Bushnell in Oslo, January 2016, Woz mentioned that he was planning his own Comic Con that year (2016) — The Silicon Valley Comic Con located in San Jose, something new, something different than other Comic Cons, a combination of pop culture and science. For me growing up with Star Wars, Star Trek, Blade Runner, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Dune, The Last Starfighter, WarGames, ET and TRON, to mention a few. Those movies has been a part of inspiring me to do what I do, so I ended up visiting my very first Comic Con that year :-) Thanks Woz!
