Probably because Alan Kay and the rest of the formerly Apple Smalltalk
gang are now at Disney. So is Danny Hillis (Thinking Machines founder).
Disney now has some very heavy hitting computing talent, and I can't tell
if they plan to do some innovative work in that space, or they just
realized that fun is what motivates these guys, so they put them to work
on theme park stuff.
