Default My Experience with Microsoft Popfly!

Hey Guy's - I just got my invite to Microsoft Popfly.
It's basicaly a web based Programming IDE (ish) - But you can make a program without needing to write a line of code!
Normally, Applications created with Popfly Interact with other website's such as Flickr or Facebook.

One of the thing's i tryed out, was to make a "Mashup" (One of these program thing's), Which Had a User Input box, a Flickr Block (Somthing which connect's to and searches the Flickr Server), and a Slideshow Block (Basically the GUI of a slideshow). So, You could Type somthing in the Text Box, and Press enter. From there it would contact the flickr Server's and search for whatever i typed in, and then the Slideshow block would get X amount of images, with a Tag of what you entered into the text box, and display them in a nice slideshow box!

I will have some invites soon, so PM Me if you want one when i get them. First come First Serve!

Eh, I tried it out. It wasn't really anything special IMO, I thought there weren't enough good APIs.
