How about a twisted version of the (in)famous "webapp in 20 minutes"?
Maybe not a stupid blog but some kind of remote management by using
conch? That would be:
- simple persistence (maybe just files but async)
- business logic (conch connecting to a host and doing stuff)
- presentation layer with web or web2
