+1 on Netscape Time. The other place to look is Michael Lewis’s The New New Thing about Jim Clark.

Have you consulted the book Netscape Time by Jim Clark? It is a pretty detailed accounting of the founding of Netscape.

Dear everyone,


here’s an interesting question concerning the history of Netscape from my dear colleague Andreas Bernard. How did Andreessen and Clark (and probably Perkins?) celebrate the foundation of Mosaic Communications Corporation on April 4th 1994? Can someone help?

Dear all,
I have a little question concerning a certain day in recent computer history. Has anybody done some research or does anybody know a source about April 4 1994, the day Andreessen and Clark founded Netscape? I would need some precise information on the circumstances of that day: when and where did they release the foundation, how did they celebrate it, what did they do in the evening of April 4 (e.g. a festive dinner, a big party)? 
It would be so great if somebody among us knew a source? I have researched the Net for hours and all I found was only some very general articles about the foundation, without any specific information.
Thank you so much for your help.
Best regards, Andreas
