    Interesting development. Strange that there is no mention of the acquisition on the Genesifter/VizX website five days later. Good to see that Genesifter employees (at least some of them) will move to Geospiza. It looks like VizX will be liquidated (what’s left?) in the next few months. At least the technology and the employees can soldier on!
