Open Source Project of the Week

The Open Source project of the week is Tiddly on Tahoe. tiddly_on_tahoe_
combines the functionality of TiddlyWiki_ with Tahoe.  Doing so allows
you to run an unhosted web application.  Prime example of an unhosted
web application using tiddly_on_tahoe is `Zooko's blog`_ and the
`Unhosted Wiki`_.
