It's official: Someone's started the New York Times deathwatch

And that someone is none other than Netscape co-founder Marc Andreessen (who, come to think of it would know something about deathwatches). He does a good job of charting the story up until now, and leaves readers with a very good question that nobody seems to be asking:
given that the Internet is the central force dismantling the company's business, I'm sure that by now they've stocked their board with noted Internet experts.

He goes on to list all the board members, which include the former CEO of Nabisco and the current CEO of Sara Lee, both of whom seem like odd choices even in the best of days.
