Tom Tromey and Stormy Peters

Tom Tromey did a fun BLUG talk about emacs last night, with slides he did in, well, you know, emacs.

As you can see from the pictures, it's all downhill from here.

He recommends the emacs wiki, which is created with EmacsWikiMode.

Tom's worked on a pile of stuff over the years, including the Gnu Java compiler, and both automake and autoconf.

Perhaps the video will be up soon. I hope it does as much for his career as her recent talk at BLUG did for Stormy Peters.

What's the hardest thing about switching from emacs? Getting the deposit back when you return a garage full of empty Alt-Meta-Cokebottles.
