Apple Co-founder Woz on Dancing With the Stars Tonight

Mike Musgrove

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is hoping for the support of techies and Mac fans tonight, as he appears on a popular dancing competition TV show.

As the latest season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars kicks off, "Woz" will be competing against the likes of Denise Richards, Lil Kim and Steve-O (he of "Jackass" fame).

In an online effort to drum up votes for one of the world's more famous geeks, there's a Web site , a Facebook group, and a Twitter feed.

At Wozniak's personal Web site, Woz mentions that an iPhone app allowing fans of the show to vote for him is in the works and should be available soon. (Hopefully, he doesn't get kicked off first.) He also points out that fans can vote up to 13 times with their cell phones.

Woz is famous for having designed some of Apple's first computers, along with the company's other founder, Steve Jobs. Along with partner Karina Smirnoff, Woz will be dancing tonight to the Bachman Turner Overdrive song '"You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet"
