Since 2007 is going to be about increased productivity, efficiency and leverage, I decided to pick up a copy of TextMate to get the ball rolling. Wow, is this program powerful! I’m a big shortcut fan. My philosophy is if you’re using your mouse, then you must not value your time. But TextMate takes shortcuts to another level.
If you do any kind of programming — I do a lot of HTML — TextMate values your time way more than you do already. I promise. I can tell I’m going to get a valuable education using this software.
I’m testing the blogging feature right now by inserting a picture of my first New England snow into a simple text file that’s connected to my blog. You can watch a video of what I’m doing here. Ha! It was so easy to create that link and create this emphasis. I’m not sure that TextMate will replace Ecto, but it just might. It’s so simple. So Zen.
