As for Markdown, I'm a technical and marketing content writer and I use Markdown all day. I use it because it's easy to mark simple document elements like headers and formatting, it can be scripted so, for example, I can grab the URL of my most recent safari tab and use it to create a properly formatted link using the text I have highlighted with a keyboard shortcut, because I can easily export it to HTML, docx, or PDF depending, and because word processors suck for serious writing.
