“Look at structured societies like Singapore where bad behavior is not tolerated [and] you are extremely punished”, Mr Wozniak said.
Mr Wozniak questioned the existance (if any) of creative people, great artist, great musicians and great writers in Singapore.
Commenting specifically on Singapore, he said that although many people are educated with well-paid jobs and nice cars, “creative elements” in society seem to have disappeared. He added that inspiring creativity was important to a company like Apple.
Speaking about his former business partner, the late Steve Jobs, he said that allowing creativity was more important than wearing a suit or the length of your hair.
Mr Wozniak founded Apple Computer Company (now Apple Incorporated) with Ronald Wayne and the late Steve Jobs in 1970.
The computer engineer and programmer last visited Singapore to speak at a motivational talk series organized by Singapore’s Workforce Development Agency and the National Trades Union Congress in March this year.
