Last month I shared this story with a few of you privately. Now I've 
decided it is safe to post. :)

During the VCF East planning, I asked Thompson when exactly in 1969 he 
started working on the disk program that became Unix (cited at 21:25 in 
this video: https://tinyurl.com/y55g2puu) ... he told me he didn't 
remember, but "I leave it to you to invent a date."

That's a lot of pressure! :)
