Hemingwrite: Throwback or Great Leap Forward

patrick_paul_smPatrick Paul is part of the local team of developers who came up with this ingenious device. Hemingwrite a distraction free writing tool that is part throwback to the portable typewriters that many of us remember fondly (or not) from late night paper writing sessions in college.  It is also a wonderful digital device that is deliberately NOT connected to the Internet.  Find out why!


rick broidaRick Broida, our favorite writer, columnist, commentator, cheapskate (and zombie wrangler) joins us for our discussion about Hemingwrite.  Is it a great leap forward for someone who is constantly on deadline for his articles?  Listen and see.
