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.
Please excuse me if I got a little carried away. But I care about open standards, open source, and above all what these two things represent -- CHOICE.
So I do what I can -- I download and run the builds through their paces. I occasionally uncover a bug (I think I've actually reported 4 unique ones to date). I wrote to somebody volunteering for the documentation project and never heard back from them. I wish I could do more. And it really riles me that I can't.
Sorry... I'm getting way off track here, I know.
I REALLY want to see this succeed. As you said yourself, the alternative is not thinkable.
If I've gotten out of line in expressing myself here, I apologize, and I await any opportunity that comes my way to further the project.
Well, it's getting really late where I live... I guess I'll quit wasting space and unpack today's build and play with it for a few minutes before I crash.
