Aaron Swartz is working on a new web app framework for Python:

And so, Lisp and Django found wanting, we’re left with web.py. I’d like to say that web.py learned from these mistakes and was designed to avoid them, but the truth is that web.py was written before all this and managed to avoid them anyway.

The Reddit team rewrote their app from Lisp to Python using web.py, and presumably they’re using web.py for Aaron’s secretive Infogami start-up.
