“Writing is thinking on paper.”

— William Zinsser
Or so says the introductory quote from the interface I’ll be interrogating, Onword. The description of this application from the website is “Onword is a simple writing application. Sign in with Twitter, write, save, and pick up where you left off. Write in Markdown and share fully formatted HTML documents.” I think this tool is really interesting because is so simple. While most new tools are concerned with being flashy and having every gizmo possible, all Onword offers is a blank canvas where inspiration and words can come together. I look forward to interrogating each aspect of this tool, and seeing whether the simplicity is a positive or a negative.
