Remixing the Web II

I wondered when Microsoft would enter the visual mashup IDE world. With Yahoo Pipes, Zude and similar projects, Microsoft has jumped in and is making great use of its cross-platform / cross-browser Silverlight plugin within a visual mashup interface they are calling Popfly. Google, where are you on this front? I had my reservations at first, but I am now thoroughly convinced that a MyEoL within The Enyclopedia of Life is well within reach. What remains is intelligent and simple use of these technologies while maintaining accreditation for contributions.
