    Apple founder Steve Wozniak and Marvel Comics' Stan Lee announced Friday that they'll bring a Silicon Valley Comic Con to San Jose next year.

    The event will take place on March 19-20 at San Jose McEnery Convention Center and focus on the convergence of pop culture and technology.

    "There are lots of fans like me in San Francisco and the Valley, and I’m excited that now we’ll have a Comic Con with our very own flavor," Wozniak said in a memo posted to the event website. "When I was growing up, it was hard to be a geek. It definitely wasn’t cool, and that wasn’t easy. I’m happy things have changed because now people are able to be proud of being geeks and being different. Silicon Valley Comic Con will be an event where fans of all kinds can celebrate the Age of the Geek."
