Last month I started using PyLucid for a few small side websites. The
UI is still a bit clunky in spots, and the functionality is simple (part
of why I chose it). Because of that it's also small enough for me to be
able to read the code in one sitting and fix something I need to in my
little slice of free time budgeted towards it. It's moderately active
as well, and you can see them tag it every few months. I can give a
small demo of it at the next meeting.
Also, is our chipy.blip.tv account the sort of thing we can share
internally? I have the video from September and could upload if whoever
runs it doesn't mind sharing the password. I peeked around and it
doesn't look like there is a feature to allow other Blip User ID's
publish to a different channel ( though I could have missed it ).
