What happened to Wallop?

At FlashForward 2006 in Austin Wallop was all the rage. They threw an awesome kickoff party, were looking for all the Flash developers they could to help build 'widgets' for their platform, and everyone was blogging about how cool it was of an idea.

In the past few months I hadn't heard a word about Wallop. I was wondering what happened, and today I saw a blog post from Ryan Stewart entitled "Signs of life at Wallop". It helps to explain the lack of communication coming out of Wallop/Microsoft (where it was founded -- surprising, I know, considering it is developed fully in Flash).

But, I'm interested to hear if anyone is still using, or better yet developing for, Wallop. It looks like they may be re-developing in Flex and I'm sure with all the hoopla around Flex these days that they'll pick up some interest there.

Check out Ryan's post here:

I tried it out a while back and, frankly, found it lacking. I don’t know if it was because the user interface was a little difficult to use or simply because they didn’t give me any good reasons to stay, but I logged in twice, and then forgot about it.

Wallop got beat when facebook upped the ante and added all the additional functionality.

I don’t even remember my wallop login anymore.

I tried Wallop and it was very challenging to use. It is confusing and it has no use for me or my group of friends.
