Tim O'Reilly, Microsoft, Silverlight and Popfly
by Jesse Liberty
Popfly shows me that Microsoft still thinks this is all about software, rather than about accumulating data via network effects, which to me is the core of Web 2.0...They are using Popfly to push Silverlight, rather than really trying to get into the mashup game.
This raises a host of interesting questions for me as a long time author for O'Reilly Media and as "Silverlight Geek" for Microsoft.
As a start, I decided it was time for me to turn my attention to writing a bit more about Popfly, and I invite you to join me if you'd like to know more about this interesting, if now somewhat controversial, technology.
