Vim - On distraction and destruction
Let's talk about text
Text writing, text transforming and text navigating.
With vim you not only get the possibility to execute those tasks,
likewise provided by many many other tools, but it's designed so you can do
it with near speed of thought
Before talking next time about how vim allows this, let's get the question why speed
even matters out of the way.
Your brain is the fountain of creativity. Thoughts, insights and ideas are
manifestations of it. They can be fragile and slip through the cracks and
every moment the next thought is already in the pipeline, battling for
your precious attention. Besides coming and going at different levels of
awareness, they morph too.
And that is why I think speed matters.
An ideal system would be interactionless. Thinking becomes synonymous with
creating. No time passed, means no time wasted and no distraction disrupts.
The thought how it was meant to be simply creates.
