Just read this evening that Google purchased Instantiations. Here is the Instantiations web site with an official report.
Wow. Of course I know the Instantiations folks really well, having worked with many of them for years and I congratulate them. I’m guessing that Google was mostly interested in their Java tools, but I have to wonder if they appreciate the Visual Age Smalltalk product that Instantiations also produces. That’s some formidable team and product line they purchased and I wish Eric and the rest great success going forward.
UPDATE: I have part of this wrong. Google purchased the Java tools. Instantiations will remain as a Smalltalk only company.
