Scott Knaster Interview
Interview by Mark "The Red" Harlan
Scott Knaster has the true "trail of tears" resume, having worked for some of the most over-hyped companies in the Silicon Valley: Apple, ACIUS and General Magic. Known in the Macintosh community for his books How to Write Macintosh Software, and Macintosh Programming Secrets, he did the unthinkable and joined Microsoft. This would be enough to scare away most mortals, but Josh and I like Scott and we figured he was probably just unaware enough to sit down and talk to us. As you listen, keep in mind Scott is an employee of Microsoft, not a spokesman for them. His opinions are wholly his own.
