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.

I agree with you that JWZ's resignation means nothing for the Mozilla.org project. The project don't depend on a sigle men. But what is interesting is what this resignation means per se.

Jamie was the head of that project. He belived in them than nobody else. He knew all about it. And he is much smarter than you hot heads, without letting religious fights clouding his judgement. And he's publically accepting that project's failure. That means something: that the project HAS failed.

Jamie is everything BUT a quitter. He just know when to leave a sinking ship. When to stop fighting for a lost cause.

"M3 is FUCKING FANTASTIC"?! LOL! If I didn't know Kovu from his previous postings (completely fanatic, usually missing the point and eternally making the user-name mistake) I would bother to answer.
