A complicated man.

Redmonk Steve turned me on to Hydra, a programmer’s text editor that focuses on collaboration.

Now I’ve got no one with whom to collaborate—though I hope to someday—but it is god-damn fast! I normally use jEdit for all my development needs, but it can be something of a memory hog, even on Thor who has 768MB of RAM. I still love jEdit profusely (and am toying ever so delicately with Eclipse), but Hydra reminds me of what Safari did for me after years of OmniWeb use: it’s a great power application but too sluggish for daily use.

Thanks, Steve!
