Popfly Comes to Your Computer

Microsoft last week made available the public alpha release of Popfly, a tool built on Microsoft Silverlight that lets people build and share mashups, gadgets, Web pages and small and personal applications on the Popfly Space network.

Popfly is intended for the novice or hobbyist who's interested in experimenting with Silverlight and building and sharing Silverlight applications.

Have you looked at Silverlight yet? What are your thoughts? Let me know at [email protected].
