I recommend Scrivener as the application for doing long-form writing. But since I’m no longer in academia and I don’t write creatively, I don’t often use the program—unless my blog articles run away from me. (Besides, my vim keybinding addiction is enabled by QuickCursor). Even when I do, it is pretty much limited to its MultiMarkdown export to HTML for notetaking.
The other day, I noticed they added a tutorial document to the application itself. I decided to go through it.

Very cool. I learned a lot that I didn’t get (not) slogging through the complete(ly boring) user manual.
Now if only if I can figure out some reason to actually use the program…
Take photos of your family.
My mom, aunt, and uncle in Kyoto Japan 1941. My other aunt (who hadn’t been born yet) sent me this photo today.
Distance is no object—that’s (Cmd-Shift-3 on the Macintosh).

I’m going to try to use ScanCafe to digitize my parents old photos quickly. I am receiving it as during KQED Public Radio’s last pledge drive. The idea is they send you a box, you fill it with photos and slides, and then they give you DVDs with them digitized.
Update: Here they are (and some of the ones here).
