Day two of MacHack; a hotel full of TiBooks. Everyone except our small Netscape contingent is running IE. It's very sad. I look around the audience during a session and on every single laptop someone is surfing with MacIE. Even Tim O'Reilly (of O'Reilly & Associates who gave last night's keynote) quickly dismissed Mozilla when scc asked him what he thought. People seem utterly apathetic. Perhaps this is just the wrong forum, but then you'd think that we'd at least see some move towards mozilla among the hacker-elite since 1.0's release. Nope.

Would you think that something called "ProjectX" was actually a web browser? Would you think to double-click it to search the web? I didn't think so. Stupidest fucking name I could ever imagine, and that's what we wind up with.
