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.

What a man we've lost! I do understand Jamie's concerns with Mozilla/Netscape and AOL. I guess everyone has been a bit worried at some point during the last few months. What a mess.

I'd really like to hear that Jamie is keeping himself busy in the open source world, he's been a great personality shining though the walls of grey geeks!

Although I'm truly sad to see him go (from us, for now at least!), and wish him well in the future... I can't let this conspiracy theory go:

ESR is looking for someone to take over HIS job? How about it JWZ? I think you've got the personality AND the techno-savvy...

Hmmm... Ponderous. Truly ponderous.
