[This talk by Tavis Rudd](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SkdfdXWYaI) about a system he used when his hands were afflicted with RSI is pretty interesting.

Not entirely a no-hands approach, but I can't seem to remember the developer who made his first app in the hospital by typing with one/two fingers. He wrote a blogpost about his process that was really inspiring.

Ever since I first saw that talk, I've been checking his github page to see if he's pushed his code yet. Not that I'm judging; if I had a dime for every project I totally intended to push to github "once I clean up the duct tape", and then didn't, I'd probably have, like, a dollar.

Other people have pushed source code to github so you can stop waiting.

After hearing this talk, I used this repo as an inspiration to get started on my own setup: https://github.com/dictation-toolbox/aenea

Works well for me, but with some friction from reliance on a Windows VM.

Would be nice if Dragon could enhance their Mac product to be on par with their PC product. Even with Apple's recent resurgence it doesn't always get first class treatment.

-----


I think the quality difference might be due to a lot of government jobs where you people use dragon are on Windows.

- Jumping in on a screencast series about vim stuff. Although I'm kind of hesitant about it's reception I've decided to go through. - Other projects but honestly not near finishing them.

This is a good option, all images are svgs so you won't run into scaling issues, the quality generally very high, and all images are CC licensed (or public domain) with options to pay to waive attribution. The only tricky bit would be getting them into word in an efficient manner.

-----


They appear to offer PNGs of everything in addition to SVG so importing should be easy. Although you may lose some of the benefits of SVG.

-----


-----


What other licenses are usually on that list?

-----


This is such a cool series. Except it hurts that I can try out the tutorials live because the "metal code" doesn't run on either the simulator or my A6 chip containing iPhone 5. Off by one generation :(

I remember at some point Cook alluding to a days worth of battery life.

Eames's views towards design helped me better make peace with accepting constraints and working with them as part of the medium.

Also, their interview set in a beautiful layout by House Ind, sure did help drive the point better - http://eames.houseind.com/objects/catalog.html

It might still be freely available as a catalog to those interested in their products. I highly recommend that one.

I know right? More screen real estate doesn't translate into productivity every time. I was aghast (and subsequently enlightened) when I heard Rob Pike saying he uses a 11" Macbook Air. That was actually the same computer I had at the time and definitely contributed to not worrying about throwing money at a larger screen.

-----


Then again, Rib Pike probably doesn't work in eclipse.

-----


In this article[0] Rob talks a bit about his setup.

It says he uses a Macbook Air but doesn't mention whether or not he hooks up an external monitor sometimes.

Great content.

How are you handling hosting for your videos and are the costs manageable?

I am using AWS S3/CloudFront (should probably do an episode on it ;). Just to give you an idea of how awesome it is. There were 200+ people on the site when this hit the front page [1]. The site is still really fast and the bill will likely be less than $5.
