Nothing to see in the Valley

Jim Clark, founder of Netscape, gets scratched at VentureBlog:

Jim Clark tells BusinessWeek that nothing's going on [via Scripting News].

There's nothing going on that's of interest. There are only very few things.

That's right, nothing. Neither weblogs nor wikis, nor hi-fi nor wi-fi, nor googling nor ogling, will save us now.

Nothing to see here folks. Now move along.

I wonder when the former Netscape founders started those lamentations. Or when exactly they lost vision. Was it before they left? How long before Netscape died?

I apologize for the bit of nostalgia. I'll remember Andreessen's rule of crappy people, but that's about all I'll remember about that particular management.
