Microsoft's Popfly Builds on Silverlight for Media Mashups

Microsoft released the beta version of Popfly, a tool built on Microsoft Silverlight media streaming technology. Popfly provides a way to build and share "mashups," gadgets, Web pages and applications. For instance, it could be used to spice up a Facebook profile, blog or personal Web page by adding games, slide shows, "Halo 3" stats or eBay auctions.

Microsoft also announced that its Silverlight initiative continues to grow -- it now has over 50 partners.
