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.

Ah, yes they do indeed prevent from going places. The last thing I remember from my AOL membership is that they prevented you from using a News Reader through their connection. Instead you had to use the one built into AOL which only allowed family-friendly newsgroups.
