Paperback is a clean and simple way to read Pinboard articles later. Like a good book, Paperback is lightweight, easy to use, and enjoyable. I started Paperback in 2013 and am the product architect, developer, and sole proprietor.

I maintain an installation of Mailman to host my own mailing list and wanted to share the platform for other writers. I also created the
email@example.com mailing list as a community of writers to talk about our craft.
Writing and Publishing Utilities
I’m in the process of developing a personal set of writing and publishing utilities, including a system deeply integrating
vim, and MediaWiki, as well as a
python application for publishing and deploying static websites. I’m continuing to refine these products and plan to open source each as they stabilize. Some of these are below:
Creating this plugin has had a greater impact on my writing than any other tool. It uses
pandoc and a
latex template to generate a well formatted document and then sends it to your printer all from
vim. Now you have a hard copy draft that you can mark up. Writing and editing in separate tools and phases helps me focus on doing one at a time. See more on Github.
As part of expanding my writing into poetry and desiring a particular format for poetry on this site, I wrote a plugin for python-markdown called
mdx_poetic. Learn more about how to install and use the project on PyPi.
