I’ve been eyeing Octopress for some time as a nice lightweight blogging platform to replace Wordpress. The zippy static pages are nice when my host is somewhat less than reliable. (Last time I hit the front page on Hacker News, everything broke.) I also like markdown, the simple rsync deploy, the solid, responsive, readable design, and the nerd cred. I might not play World of Warcraft or go to Comic-Con, but I enjoy Doctor Who and I blog with Octopress, so count it.
That is all.
