Spinnaker Spins Off Titles

Spinnaker, the company responsible for such hit educational titles over the years as FaceMaker, SnooperTroops, and KidWriter, has decided to concentrate its efforts on productivity software. The company sold its Spinnaker and Springboard educational software lines to Queue, a Fairfield, Connecticut, software company.

Queue will continue to sell all of the Spinnaker and Springboard educational products, said Jonathan Kantrowitz, CEO of Queue. In addition, it will bring back some products that Spinnaker was no longer marketing and revise some of the older titles. Spinnaker, which began as an educational software company in 1982, sold off the titles so that it could concentrate on its BetterWorking productivity series and Plus hypermedia program.
