John's post on Popfly seems to have popped up a lot in the Microsoft blogsphere recently. There's a great example on how Popfly could be used in the retail space with the "Gift-o-Matic"... I thought I was pretty familiar with what it could do after a few of Nick Hodge's demos... but this is cool (discounting Nick's t-shirt here).
As John says, "Popfly is pretty cool. Not just geeky-cool -- but honest-to-goodness cool on multiple levels. It goes way beyond what anyone else is doing, and represents a new way for businesses and consumers to engage with each other. If there's anything close, it's FaceBook with their FaceBook applications -- but those only work on FaceBook -- and Popfly works on FaceBook and virtually everywhere else, too".
