Awww yiss, chummers! Cyberpunk Librarian is back from an unexpected hiatus with a new show about notebooks!
Wait, notebook computers?
No, paper notebooks! But there is a tech twist to my notational madness as we get into how to keep a notebook where you can actually find the information you wrote down, even if it’s months or years ago. Welcome back to Cyberpunk Librarian!

Join us for a new episode of Cyberpunk Librarian where we dig into the markup language that is Markdown. You too can write rich text in a plain text editor and easily share it online! It’s easy to learn and easy to use and will change the way you look at plain text!
Correction: In the episode I credit Aaron Swartz as a co-creator of Markdown, working with John Gruber. In reality, Swartz was an important early tester, but not a co-creator of Markdown. Thanks to Steve Thomas of Circulating Ideas for the correction!
Drink the Kool Aid, or take a bite of the Apple, or something like that! Dan gets into the nitty gritty of how he gets it done on his MacBook and what he uses on a regular basis!
