From the announcement blog:

Trillr is a Twitter-like microblogging service enhanced with user directory and group discussion features. It was born in November 2007 as a peer group experiment where Jan Brauer, Christian Pesch and I decided to create “something like Twitter” to learn more about the programming language Python and its web framework Django.

Setting up your own system requires some assembly. A README file explains the details. Expect 30 min of work or so. Trillr is a standalone web application usable with modern standard conforming web browsers (and the Internet Explorer). It uses a few bits of JavaScript here and there but should run just fine without it. It is not a product although it runs very stable for nearly a year now and has a great performance for 100+ users even on our tiny virtual Linux server also running the mysql database.

You can download trillr1 source code here.
