Plone is a Content Management System that some people use as a web  
framework. Grok is a web framework that some people use for content  
management. Simple :)

Both make use of lots of Zope 3 technologies, so it's reasonably easy  
to switch development mindsets between the two.

Phillip was doing some experimenting with a megrok.five package that  
made Grok run under Zope 2 a year back, but realistically if you want  
to integrate between a Grok app and a Plone app then your best choice  
is likely going to be to explore how Python makes a great language for  
both producing and consuming simple web services such as REST :)
