There’s another new web technology being announced by Microsoft today. Welcome Popfly to the world of mash-ups and other Web 2.0 services! I had heard rumors about this new technology that was formerly code named “Springfield”, but hadn’t had time to check it out.
Popfly is a new, easy way to build and share mashups, gadgets, Web pages, and applications. Popfly consists of two parts:
· Popfly Creator is a set of online visual tools for building Web pages and mashups.
· Popfly Space is an online community of creators where you can host, share, rate, comment and even remix creations from other Popfly users.
Looks like Scoble and the folks at TechCrunch are already talking about it. I gotta see if I can get myself one of the alpha invitations. From the sounds of it, they’re rationing those things even inside of the company!
