Mozilla is now something of a venerable institution in the open
source world - the first release of browser code by Netscape took place
back in 1998. Even Firefox is eight years old, which seems pretty incredible.
I have been a technology journalist and consultant for nearly 30 years, covering
the Internet since March 1994, and the free software world since 1995.
One early feature I wrote was for Wired in 1997:
The Greatest OS that (N)ever Was.
My most recent books are Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution, and Digital Code of Life: How Bioinformatics is Revolutionizing Science, Medicine and Business.
