Xah, got any good suggestions for emacs friendly Bluetooth keyboards? Does not have to be over the top exotic/ergonomic as long as control key can be Where It Belongs.

Curious,

afaik, bluetooth mouse or keyboard are rather rare. Most wireless keyboard or mouse i've seen uses their own protocol.

I think this also explains why I prefer non-graphical interfaces to everything text.   All graphics are are designed to distract you from the content.

I purchased an e-reader, not a tablet PC, because I want to read books on it. I don't want music, video, chat, social networking, email, and etc. disrupting my reading.

My e-reader has an e-ink display, not a backlit screen. I find e-ink more natural to read on, and less distant from traditional paper pages.

I love paper books, and miss the smell of them. It just isn't practical for me to keep thousands of paper books in my home.

"Suppliers that refuse both field upgradability and open source access to their products should be said to be in a kind of default by abandonment.  Abandonment of anything else of value in our world has a regime wrapped around it that eventually allocates the abandoned car, house, bank account, or child to someone new.  All of the technical and procedural fixes to the monoculture problem need that kind of backstop, viz., if you abandon a code base in common use, it will be seized.  "
 
i'm panicking a bit tonight, because i need to get a billion people (or more, ideally) to read this, but i can only reach a few thousand. this article isn't just dan geer at his best, though it is that. here's a snippet:

For the org-mode-ish among us, this will do the trick

https://trello.com/ looks useful for planning and tracking, and of course, with an open API it has been integrated with with Org.

Yes, today I found myself doing an incremental regexp search (""org-.*-link)"  in the keybindings list (^h b) to search for a binding to a function that might exist ("org-edit-link").
