MacVoices #13147: David Sparks Explains Markdown, Why You Need It, And Why He Wrote A Book About It
David Sparks has penned his 5th book, Markdown – A MacSparky Field Guide with Eddie Smith. What is Markdown, you ask? David helps us understand what it is, and why we need it. Making a convincing case for Markdown as a common, easy-to-use option for text entry on iPhone or iPad, David discusses its variations, and stresses its ease of use. His book, in iBooks format, contains not only instruction, but also videos for each step of the process, interviews with some of the leading proponents of Markdown, and more.
David Sparks is a trial attorney who finally came out of the closet and admitted he was a nerd several years ago. David publishes MacSparky.com and is the co-host of the Mac Power Users podcast. David also writes occasionally for Macworld and has authored a total of five books including, Mac at Work and iPad at Work, 60 Mountain Lion Tips with Brett Terpstra, Paperless, and Markdown with Eddie Smith.
