Got this e mail todday. ( yeah i was registererd but i've never made anything withit'

[quote:23lrccew]'Im writing to thank you for registering and using Microsoft Popfly. Ive been fortunate enough to see all the innovative mashups, Web pages, and games created by the Popfly community since we launched Popfly two years ago. It has truly been a pleasure to watch the spirit of creativity flow through a growing Popfly community over the life of the product.

Its with a heavy heart that I share some news with you today: on August 24, 2009, the Popfly service will be discontinued and all sites, references, and resources will be taken down.

After August 24th, your access to your Popfly account, including any games and mashups that youve created, will be discontinued. However, Microsoft is still very much dedicated to helping you express your creativity and pursuing a path to software development. If youre interested in refining your skills in Web applications, please visit Microsoft Web Platform Installer. For those interested in programming on the Xbox, then please visit Microsoft XNA or Microsoft Kodu. And for those who are interested in Windows programming, please visit Microsoft Express.

Thanks again for your support and please dont hesitate to contact us at popfly@microsoft.com if you have any questions.

Regards,
John Montgomery
for the Popfly Team'[/quote:23lrccew]

Newsflash: Microsoft provides awesome service, people people get behind it and promptly afterward Microsoft yanks the rug from under their feet.
>_<

Why didn't just improve search and featured content? this reeks of money under the table.

I'd guess Popfly has been deemed unnecessary with the release of Microsoft Kodu :-\
