Synopsis: This Sunday, August 9th, marks the 20th anniversary of perhaps the seminal moment in modern tech history. On August 9th, 1995, Netscape Communications Corporation went public. Regular listeners know, I began this project last year by collecting oral histories from a good chunk of the original Netscape engineering team (read a summary oral history here or listen to all the oral histories here). We all know that the Internet, and even the web, predated Netscape. But as the first Internet company that truly mattered, I chose to begin this project with Netscape because it was absolutely the harbinger of the modern technology revolution that has transformed all of our lives over the last 20 years.
