JWZ Resigns

Thursday April 1st, 1999

It is a bittersweet day for the Mozilla community, as while the first anniversary party for Mozilla is on going, News.com is reporting, and Jamie Zawinski has confirmed, that he is leaving AOL/Netscape, as well as the Mozilla Organization.

This comes as a blow, as Jamie was one of the key leaders of Mozilla.org, and brought about its formation in the first place. Jamie will be missed, and we wish him luck.

Sorry, how the hell did that happen? That was me above, and while it sounds in retrospect a bit hostile, I really don't think one person is going to have an effect.

To: Mozadmin: Stay the hell where you are! We don't need a freaking exodus! Netscape is going to be good for AOL, and AOL's pocketbook is going to be good for Netscape! I really don't see a downside here, considering Netscape was headed for closing its doors altogether. AOL won't censor Netcenter--Netcenter has adult customers that won't go for that crap, just like they didn't with Compuserve.

I hope Sun can turn their blundering asses around though.
