Reinventing the weblog wheel

I'm fairly happy with Movable Type, but I am constantly on the lookout for new weblogging software. During one of my surf sessions, I ran accross blosxom, a very simple weblog written in seven pages of perl. It's a very cute system, and has some terrific ideas.

Inspired by its brevity and power, I've set up the beginnings of a similar system written in Python that I am calling Pylon. It's only 140 lines of Python so far, but I was able to write a simple Python script to import all of the entries from brainwagon into it.
Check it out.

Eventually the code will be available here under my .signature license.
