Wozniak Says Silicon Valley Cares Too Much About Money

In an interview with Mashable, Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple and all around nice guy, said today's Silicon Valley cares too much about money. In particular, Woz said that people coming out of business school are all about money while engineers are more into coming up with unique designs.

It wasn't in a garage, it was in my Cupertino apartment and my Cupertino office at Hewlett Packard. The garage was kind of a true story because we were humble and we had no money. I think the money that's been made has attracted a different kind of people looking at technology today and saying 'Oh my gosh, I could maybe have a startup and make a bunch of money.' And the ones that come out of business school, money's the priority. For the ones that come out of engineering school, being able to accomplish and design things that didn't exist before is their priority.
