Drew Thaler Interview

Interesting interview from Storie di that covers at Apple, disc burning, and filesystems:

My friends and I developed the CD/DVD burning technology at a company outside of Apple, and we were acquired. It’s a little crazy to think about this, but iTunes had no support whatsoever for CD burning at the start of November 2000. The paperwork for the acquisition finished up in the middle of that month. Six frantic weeks of development later, we had integrated it into both iTunes and the Finder in Mac OS 9 in time for it to be shown at MacWorld [sic] San Francisco in January 2001. It shipped to customers later that month.
