My name is Carl Norum, I made your iPod. And probably some of the other stuff you like, too.

    Looking back on the teamwork, strategy and other elements involved with creating the iPod - what makes you smile the most?

    Well it was definitely a great learning experience for a junior guy like I was when I joined the team. Being part of producing such a successful product was really great. I remember getting a warm fuzzy feeling every time I saw someone wearing white earbuds. Heck, I still do, but they're more likely to be using a phone these days...

    We had a really great and dynamic team, which really made things fun. Maybe in ten more years we'll have a folklore.org of our own to share all of our stories.
