Microsoft’s Popfly: A Mashup Platform for Consumers
I was over at the Halo 3 launch party at Microsoft’s Silicon Valley campus and ran into Dan Fernandez, lead product manager for Visual Studio, demonstrating Popfly. It’s an alpha version of an easy-to-use mashup platform that allows consumers to easily create web services with multiple data sources, and embed them in their Web sites. These widgets can also be easiily shared amongst users. It is Microsoft’s first application of its Silverlight technology.
