Neat links from Paul Harper, who couldn’t participate in the voice chat: I am writing in to share my ‘discovery of the week’ which was J. Alexander Branham’s Blog and his dotemacs on Github. He is a PhD Candidate at UT-Austin in the Department of Government. He has some very good posts on using Emacs for Markdown, LaTeX and R for academic types. It complements Kiern Healy’s one for Social Scientists, and Vikas Rawal’s Orgpaper.
