Jesse Berst on Mozilla

Tuesday May 4th, 1999

Jesse Berst has an article on Open Source, in which he devotes a sentence to Mozilla. However, his thoughts seem to have come directly from Jamie Zawinski (like the thoughts of so many other journalists recently).

If you have the inclination, pick up a copy of "Breaking The News: How The Media Undermine American Democracy" for an interesting take on why American journalism has gone so wrong. Many of the ideas in the book can easily be applied to the tech journalism industry as well.

Thanks to Aleks Zawisza for the news.

New here, but I certainly have my opinion of Jesse Berst.... You know that one guy you have to support... You know, that one that loads every screen saver he stumbles across, every shareware program on the Net instantly makes his Windows 5 times easier to use, his Windows SysTray takes up over half his taskbar because he has so many memory-resident programs? The one whose PC you have to format and re-load every 3 weeks because he's hosed his installation once again (due blame to MS while we're on it)? That's Jesse Berst.
