Floppy Days 103 - Kay Savetz Interviews Mark Englebardt, Wayzata Technology

Mark Englebardt was the founder of Wayzata Technology, a company that was one of the earliest publishers of CD-ROM software. The company was founded in 1991, and produced hundreds of CD-ROM titles before going out of business in 1996. The company's discs were primarily for Macintosh but many worked with all ISO-9660 compatible platforms. Its most popular product was the Wayzata World Factbook, a disc of information about countries and territories around the world. 

Downloadable versions of more than 80 of Wayzata CD-ROMs are available at the Internet Archive.
