MoinMoin

Jim recently taught me the phrase ‘MoinMoin’ which is a greeting used throughout the day in northern Germany. It’s derived from ‘Guten Morgen’ (‘Good Morning’) which gets shortened to ‘Morgen’ which somehow became ‘Moin.’

Only days later I stumbled upon MoinMoin, a Wiki clone made with Python. They say the name was chosen for its WikiWikiNess.
