MSFT's Popfly: Easy Mashups for Consumers

Posted by Tom Foremski - October 1, 2007

Last week I was at Microsoft's Silicon Valley Campus for a Halo 3 launch party. MSFT was also showing off some other products.

I met Dan Fernandez, lead product manager for Visual Studio, and he showed me Popfly, which is currently an Alpha version. It is the first application of MSFT's Silverlight technology that allows developers to mashup web services and data sources. Popfly allows consumers to do similar mashups with an easy user interface. And consumers can also share their mashups, which can then be mashed up with other Popfly mashups.

This is an interesting technology but will it be put to interesting uses?
