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.

Perhaps I missed something, but... he didn't say anything anti-Mozilla, did he?

That JWZ happens to be a traitor, well, Jesse can't help noticing that. The whole world noticed that.

When Mozilla is finally released, the people will follow in our footsteps.

I know, he failed to recognize the horde of followers the Mozilla project has gained. Probably because most of us aren't programmers and don't show up in the Bugzilla databases too often...
