KiwiCodes, brilliant creator of Family Browser and the new Project Browser, has been acquired by Autodesk for an undisclosed sum, rumored to be in the 7 figures range. KiwiCodes founder Phillip Miller was last spotted completely intoxicated and singing “Money, Money, Money”.
In a press conference, Autodesk said they decided to buy this little innovative company out of sheer embarrassment that such a small company could produce something they themselves couldn’t deliver for years after being asked by their passionate users through wish lists, feedback sites and bomb threats.
It is not clear at this time whether Autodesk will include this for their subscription customers or just kill the living daylight out of this product. They also have the option of closing down the API functionality that makes Project Browser possible and then take 10 more years to come up with something bigger, heavier, less elegant and that doesn’t work. I guess we shall find out.
In the meantime, Phillip promised that all bloggers that mentioned KiwiCode’s products will get something in return, which could be as much as being be-friended on Facebook.
