Microsoft Popfly

Popfly is the fun, easy way to build and share mashups, gadgets, Web pages, and applications. Popfly consists of two parts:
Microsoft Popfly
1) Popfly Creator is a set of online visual tools for building Web pages and mashups.
2) Popfly Space is an online community of creators where you can host, share, rate, comment and even remix creations from other Popfly users.

To keep it short and simple, Popfly makes it easy for non-devs to create web sites, mashups, and more.
Drag, drag, click – you’ve got a Flikr + Virtual Earth mashup.
You can even point and click your way to a Vista Gadget.

I’ve got my own page at http://www.popfly.ms/users/amroamroamro but i’m still testing…

Start on http://www.popfly.com/ (You will need an invitation)
