Salon Magazine on Andreesen's Departure and Mozilla

Wednesday September 15th, 1999

Salon Magazine's article "Goodbye, Internet poster boy" discusses Marc Andreesen's departure from AOL, and along the way the author decides to take some potshots at Mozilla.

His opinions seem culled entirely from articles in the mainstream press, including CNet's article on the "competition" between Robert Ginda's IRC client for Mozilla and AOL's Instant Messenger. Cut-and-paste journalism at its finest. Why search out your own truth when there are so many versions just a Ctrl-V away?

Thanks to Hervé Renault for the news.

Yep. Given the logic in this article (Netscape shipping motherboards?) MS should be dead too given all the high level execs leaving or taking extended leaves of absence.

Pieces like this only make the online media have the same level of credibility as the traditional one. Great to see the facts don't get in the way of a good story.
