A new blogging tool

Somewhat overtaken by other events, Michal Sabren proprietor of Cornerhost has let slip about rantelope a new blogging tool. It is being written in Python (which is a good thing) and aims to combine the best content management and weblogging features of the market leading products.

He has mentioned his intention to open source the project and build a community around it, which is also a good thing. There is no publicly available code at the moment though.

What is not immediately apparent is what differentiates rantelope from the other tools out there, such as Movable Type, Blogger, Greymatter, Radio and Blosxom. Not to mention some of the less mainstream tools like pybloxsom, textbox. Still, I think that its worth keeping an eye on it.

One key difference - "rantelope" is a *much* funnier name. ;-)
