Minecraft Developer Developments

This press release announces that Mojang Specifications is the new name for the developer of Minecraft, and that the company has signed former CEO of Ludosity Interactive Daniel Kaplan as business developer to help expand, maintain and support Minecraft. Apparently this is all very exciting to the game itself, as word is: "Minecraft, which is currently being developed by Markus Persson aka Notch is excited: 'It's great to have Daniel on board to take care of the business side of things! He really understands that side of running a company, and us working together means I can get back to focusing on actually delivering a great product'."

What's interesting is that Wurm Online (a java MMORPG game) was developed by a company named Mojang Specifications, which changed its name to Onetwofree back in 2008. Notch then started up another corp called... Mojang Specifications! (apparently he owns that trademark and wanted full control over it, but he's still a majority owner in Onetwofree).

From what I've read he worked on Wurm as well and left because he felt it could be better. And essentially Minecraft is his vision of what Wurm should have been.
