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.

It was a TROLL, ignore it...

There is NO need for an army of coders for mozilla yet... in fact an army of coders will detriment the project, as it may lose focus, when what is required is a highly focused team of developers (which it has already). There are thousands of poeple testing out the nightly builds and M releases. these people are far more important at this stage rather than having more programmers. When mozilla reaches release stages, that is when more coders will come in.
