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.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass. I think anyone who wouldn't want the completed version of Mozilla 5.0 on their resume is stupid anyway. Developers can be replaced. They are not the only people on the planet capable of doing what they were doing. AOL will hire people in their place. I must say I hope this doesn't get any worse, but I don't think the project will suffer for it in the long run, no matter how many cowards bite the dust.
