ThoughtPattern Discontinued -- Stephen Zagerman of Bananafish Software announced that the company has suspended all marketing and technical support for ThoughtPattern and is searching for a U.S. publisher. ThoughtPattern is an excellent free-form database that I use extensively to store bits of text from the net. We wish them luck in finding a new publisher.
