I remember going to Marimba's fist developer training. Very exciting. But alas, their technology has been "repurposed" as configuration middleware. I don't think Castanet as we knew it exisists. I stopped paying attention when they killed (sold?) Bongo. Joel, maybe Kim would do the PR for your 2.0 ;-)
Remind me, what was it? I seem to remember everyone getting excited about it and it turning out to be some rather dull Java API for downloading software.
i remember reading about it in the wall street journal years ago, but all i remember of substance was biographical stuff about the hot CEO.
It was "push technology." The notion that you could double-click on an icon on your desktop and launch a word processor.
