Thought this might be interesting to y'all. (I can't watch it 'cos I'm
at work, so any comments about it would be appreciated :)

It's a nice video, I really enjoyed it. Even though the website you
linked says it's a 60 minute vid, it's only just over 30 minutes.

So far, I've created my own web framework - mostly because I didn't
see a simple to use framework that could do what I wanted it to do:
properly handle client-side caching. Looking at the Plone website, it
looks like they do support that. Perhaps I'll look into Plone for my
site in the future ;-) For now, I'm very happy with my own framework

I take that back. The Plone webserver is hosted by XS4ALL, the best
ISP in The Netherlands, which resides in Amsterdam. I happen to live
in Amsterdam too, so you'd expect the site to be fast. Well, it took 5
to 15 seconds to get a page from their FAQ[1], which is just way too
slow. As a comparison, the XS4ALL website[2] took only 0.4 seconds. I
tested it using "time lynx -dump $URL >/dev/null".

Looks like I'll be happy a while longer!

Indeed it was. The headache factor is 1, for some reason my Mandrake
2006 media players mute the sound. Had to boot to M$ :-(.

Yes, these Web 2.0 pretenders just love their proprietary formats:
Flash, QuickTime, etc. But then I guess Web 2.0 to them is all about
compromising the open nature of the Web, accessibility,
interoperability, with shiny things that are "OK because they work on
my iBook".

Just as a note, TurboGears has added a lot that would change the
scoring on this. The project has been moving pretty quickly towards 1.0
lately, and I would advise anyone interested in a comparison to check
out the recent changes before making a final decision. The same will
probably hold true for many of the projects mentioned though.
