Thought I'd give Blogsy a try

I've just got one of the new ipads, and very nice it is too. I bought a Logitech keyboard which works great and would lend itself nicely to blogging on the move. However, I wasn't sure which software to use but after a quick search found that there is really only one serious contender, Blogsy.

So we'll see how this post comes out!

Not sure how the text wrapping will work with this image, but it does appear to now be honouring the settings applied. It would be nice if it wasn't so fiddley!

Now to see if I can update the post once it's already been published.

Yes, that's working nicely.

I emailed Matthew Kirschenbaum yesterday - he's an author working on a book called the Literary History of Word Processing. You can read more about it here.

I occasionally use ALL-IN-1 which was Digital Equipment corporations Office Automation product, originally written by Skip Walter, John Churin and Marty Skinner. I thought Matthew might want to get in touch with Skip to see if there were any nice anecdotes, given that ALL-IN-1 was a $1 billion/year product for 18 years in a row. Skip maintains an excellent blog here.
