My response to his initial inquiry made his presentation. Unfortunately, he didn’t find it very useful.

The presentation makes it clear (as have all the Org-Mode fans here), that Emacs/Org-Mode is super powerful. Sadly, watching him use it, it still looked like all the stuff that streams across computer screens in a TV episode whenever a hacker is breaking into the some secret government agency. They pound out the keys, a swirl of alpha numeric stuff rips across the monitor, and the hacker says, “See that? They’re planning something called operation Org-Mode.” Or something like that. I guess, what I’m saying, is that Scrivener’s screen, which he didn’t like, makes a lot more sense to me that Org-Mode. That’s not a comment about the app. It’s comment about me.

Anyway, thanks for sharing this. It is interesting.
