The Plain Text Project comes out of slightly twisted mind of Scott Nesbitt, a Canadian writer transplanted in New Zealand. Oh, and that's me.
As I just mentioned, I'm a writer. I'm not a techie, and don't pretend to be, but I've embraced plain text for most of my daily work.

For a few years, I was seduced away by more glamorous software and web apps, but in the end I came back to plain text. Why? Read this article to learn why.
