Ghost: blogging

John O'Nolan is suggesting a new blog platform - a stripped down version of WordPress called Ghost.

Ghost proposal

Well, this looks interesting. No, not ghost blogging (I did a very little of that early in the year, and it’s not an experience I’m in a hurry to return to). Ghost is a proposal for a blogging platform – a “lite” fork of WordPress that focuses back down on it as a core blogging platform. Like Movable Type before it, WordPress has become a steadily more sophisticated and powerful CMS – but it’s becoming overkill if you just want to blog.

If this goes anywhere, it might finally tempt me to switch from Movable Type.

But then, I’m cautious. I’ve had great hopes for a fork of an existing blog platform once before, and that went nowhere…
