Mac Power Users 37: Markdown and MultiMarkdown

Mac Power Users Episode 37 is live. Katie and I talk at length about Markdown and MultiMarkdown. Specifically, how we incorporate these tools into our writing. We also enjoyed an interview with MultiMarkdown author and all around nice guy, Fletcher Penney. You can catch it on iTunes here or on the web right here. Enjoy.

I’ve already received e-mail about some of my sloppy keyboard references. So here are the errata:

/ — “Slash”

\ — “Backward Slash”

> — “Right Bracket”

^ — “Caret” or “Hat”

` – “Grave Accent”

Also, “LaTeX” should have been pronounced Lay-tech.

Sorry gang (and thanks Conor for the assistance.)

    I'd suggest calling the middle one a "right angle bracket" to distinguish it from square brackets.

    Thanks much for timely podcast. I've been wanted to begin to use MultiMarkup with the new Scrivener 2.0. The official sources for MultiMarkdown haven't been too helpful. Much space is devoted to a history of the idea and to esoteric features (i.e. metadata). I just want to know how to mark heading levels, bold, italic and the like so I can exchange texts between Scrivener and plain text editors.
