I didn't get the personal demo, but I did gather some other information that is consistent with what Lenat wrote.  I strongly agree with Lenat:

But I don't believe that Steve Wolfram will sell the company.

The company is profitable, Steve W. is too independent to sell it for a quick profit, and he doesn't have any VC's telling him what to do.
