Rewriting Reddit

Aaron Swartz writes about the rewrite of reddit in Python. Apparently the Python framework used,, was written by Aaron.

What I find most interesting is how quickly reddit was developed - and redeveloped. Only one weekend for the rewrite is pretty impressive. One reason for the fast implementation is because it's the second time they've written it and can learn from past design mistakes. They also get to reuse all the HTML design. It's a good case study though of how quickly a very popular site can be developed and maintained.
