Popfly is dead

Popfly is dead... going a way on August 24, 2009

With much sadness Popfly is going away.

Popfly was a IDE for hobbiest and non programmers for building online Silverlight mashups. Something like legos you could pick the popfly blocks you wanted and drag them on to a surface and then connect them and for the most part that was it. A cool technology but targeted towards a very narrow market and they couldn't get it to work with Silverlight 2 or newer so I'm guessing that this and more is the cause of pulling the plug. Moving forward I expect to see more mashup developement technologies in the future.
