Description

Just announced today; no more begging on the digital street for an invite to Popfly, it's now open to the public. As someone who is programmatically challenged, I love the idea of Popfly -- a way for non-programmers to create semi-complicated gadgets and mashups via drag and drop -- but I didn't know much about it. So I took a camera over to John Montgomery's office on the PopFly team to find out more.

So what can you do with Popfly? Here are some examples: Sunset Photos from Flickr on Virtual EarthYour Flickr PhotosHalo videos on SoapboxWorld of Warcraft Player DataFacebook RolodexStock Quote Bar GraphLatest headlines from MSDNSilverlight Twitter UpdaterTwitter VisionHalo 3 Scores.

You can try out Popfly now by going to go www.popfly.com. And if you want the popfly wallpaper John had on his computer, you can find that here.

      i am utterly surprised how john managed NOT to show off his "whack a cat" game... you must know he includes cats in ALL his popfly projects and rates everything that doesn´t have to do with cats bad!!! an undisclosed source actually told me he stores cat candy in his work desk.

      ok... obviously im totally making this up Smiley

      well done popfly. i am looking forward to see more really interesting stuff coming soon and more frequent now that the broad public has access.

      thanks for letting me be in the alpha!
