Wallop, Wallop, Wallop....

Well, I think I am starting a lot of my sentences with well, Well, but that's beside the point:D This one is about Wallop, Microsoft's answer to Google's Orkut. It's graduating from Microsoft Research, which I lamely relate to Google Labs. And, oh boy haven't they done it well! Wallop is much much much more like using a Desktop App than a Web app. Heck the responsiveness and UI they've got in Wallop is, uhm, pretty much hard work even to achieve in a Desktop App! Kudos to you guys, you've impressed me at first sight, even though I've not used it. Love at First Sight, eh?

 Well, it's in private beta now, and thanks to uber Microsoftie Krishna I got an invite. And, if you want an invite, just gimme a comment here, and I'll send you one:D

All I can hope and pray is that the naming guys at Microsoft don't rename Wallop into something more "appropriate", like, say, Windows Telephony Foundation ? err, or, maybe, Windows Telepathy Foundation ? Windows Telepathy Force ?

Sometimes I feel that the entire world is going really crazy with tons of sco-net services sprouting every now and then. I felt that wallop is a bit too heavy. As in, the UI looks bulky. Dont you think so? (features are pretty good though :) )

@Sunil: For me, it looks like a dazzling desktop app converted to the web:D

Remember the convert to web feature of VB6 ?:P
