Infogami

Does anyone have an idea what Infogami -- http://infogami.com -- is making? Perhaps someone works with them, or has had a chance to talk to Aaron, perhaps on Startup School?

"Infogami is the Macintosh of building websites."

Perhaps it is yet another attempt to automate human creativity?

As far as I can tell, they are building a wiki application.  See http://wiki.ycombinator.com/ for a wiki that was apparently created with their product.

Of course their home page implies that they're creating something much grander.  So either they really think wikis can change the world, or the wiki is just one example of what you can do with their product.

"We're a very early-stage startup and we're looking for great hackers to join us in building this Python web app."

Run as fast as you can, away. :)

Google has acquired: Vint Cerf - yeah right.

Based on the facts:

a) it's a web app
b) vague description of functionality

you may only draw one conclusion: it's a CMS.  You can't throw a rock at a programmer's head without hitting a CMS somewhere...er, I think that's the appropriate metaphor...something like that.  Anyways, the point is that there are lots of programmers writing CMSs; that's what I'm getting at.

Infogami - like origami, except information instead of paper?

Zpedia and Ycombinator Wiki run on Infogami.  But so does Aaron's blog.  Perhaps some hybrid information management and manipulation tool?
