What do you think about this? It's got all the requisite buzzwords and those ducks with their reflections sure are pretty. It's supposed to be for the MySpace generation who want to create mashups but are too lazy/stupid to learn how to write code.

Still waiting for an invite, but from the demo, it looks nothign but impressive.

Looks neat.  A lot like Yahoo Pipes, but with some WPF eye-candy thrown at the interface.

Ooh- just noticed the visual studio add-in, which means popfly could potentially do a lot more than Pipes alone.

Sorry, they already lost me - before I even know what it's about, they want me to create an account and log in. The barrier is too high.

And what's up with the .ms domain? What country did Microsoft just buy?

Classic example of the cause of ageism in IT. The young people leapfrogs the old pretty quickly.

Was that your response to 'del.icio.us' too? As much as I think the practice sucks, this is clearly an attempt to combine their branding with web2.0 domain name styling.
