Netscape/AOL Layoffs Occur: 850 Jobs Lost

Wednesday March 31st, 1999

Well, folks, the news is in. The layoffs have occurred; Netscape and AOL each lost 425 employees. Click here for an article at the San Jose Mercury News.

MozillaZine would like to say to all of those we know who were laid off that we'll miss them, and we wish them well in their futures. Thanks for all your selfless help and work.

According to my story (which you could have read four hours before the Merc story was posted ;-) there were no engineers or developers cut.

Sorry to be off topic, but I'm working on a story about Mozilla looking toward year 2. If you have comments/perspective you want to share before noon (ASAP actually) today (Thursday), drop me some email at <paulf@cnet.com>.
