That's a cool deal. My day job requires detailed notes daily. Good thing I'm also a writer. :)

Huh. Does writing help one become more conscientious in general, or simply more aware of mistakes and willing to take a few seconds to correct them?

From knowing a few I'm not surprised that IT people/programmers don't write well (where well is defined as writing without errors) but it is amusing since typos in programming wreak havoc with your code.

Just wanted to say I watched the talk you gave in Brandon Sanderson's class on YouTube and I found it very informative. Thank you!
