Stats and Stuff
According to Kamber quoting from StatisticBrain, 40% of the 500 million Twitter users don’t send tweets.
And according to eConsultancy, 41% of people who click paid searches in Google think they are clicking organic results.
And about paid search results… is it just me or is the yellow background highlight colour that separates paid from organic search less ‘yellow’ and obvious than it used to be?
Gingkoapp is an online app for collaboration or just to organise your writing. I haven’t tried it but that’s because I have Scrivener for complex writing projects.
Gingko is an online word processor, that lets you work on structure and content at the same time.
Because of that, Gingko’s interface is minimal, and gets out of your way. All formatting is done with Markdown, so you can focus on writing instead of font selection.
Gingko is built with a “keyboard-first” mindset. You can use the mouse to work, but our keyboard shortcuts are fast, simple, and intuitive.
This lets you keep your hands on the keyboard and your thoughts on your work.
Intro pricing is free for up to three trees and then a monthly plan for an infinity of plans.
For simple ‘distraction-free’ writing I use Writeroom for Mac which is not online but which has a feature that I like… it can be set full screen and then I don’t see anything except the writing surface. I set the sound on my Mac to zero so that I don’t hear the distraction of emails either.
