Microsoft Popfly

So today I got an invite for microsoft's popfly . Popfly seems to be msfts take on letting users create mashups, websites , communities etc without typing in a single line of code and is powered by silverlight. The key word here being "user" which means anyone can create a mashup without knowing how things work behind the scenes.

The site is in alpha, and there are definitely some issues that I have come across. But the UI is amazing, it works with firefox ( big plus ! ).

I will be messing around with this and see what mashups I can come up with. Please feel free to add me as a friend ( ) and I will post invites for users as soon as I get them :)

Vice Funds

I read about vice funds a while back on From the site the fund invests in alcohol, tobacco, gaming, aerospace and defense stocks. It is an interesting concept because in many ways people are addicted to this stuff and they have had very nice yearly returns ( close to 14.3%/yr ) to back their idea.

Now for anyone who still reads this would you invest in it ? Abhi , I think I already know your answer :)
I need to start posting stuff here again ....
