Technical Difficulties with Vim

July 17, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

On this week's Technical Difficulties we are joined by our dear friend and collaborator Potatowire to talk about his switch to Vim.1

I really know I should switch to Vim and Potatowire nearly convinced me. It's one of those life changes that needs to actually fit with what's going on in your life but that you're glad you did. Vim has been on my someday list of things to learn for ages. I think Potatowire paints a compelling picture and the show notes illustrate just how much power it brings to text editing and reinforces why I should move it to my due list. I'm envious of his setup. Work anywhere (even mobile on a subway) and always have your text editor in tune with your idiosyncrasies.

On a related note, this isn't the last time you'll hear from Potatowire. We have some special things coming in the future. They'll be enough Potatowire to go around.


  1. In case you were unaware, Potatowire is our regular show note collaborator. You can see his comments sprinkled throughout the lengthy show notes of all of the Technical Difficulties episodes. He's also a super nice and super smart person.
