The words you are now reading were typed in on my Nexus 7, and published to the blog without the use of a traditional “Personal Computer.” First time it’s happened, but maybe not the last.
How (for geeks) · ConnectBot to ssh to tbray.org, Hacker’s Keyboard for a big 5 rows with Esc and arrows and so on, and terminal-mode Emacs on tbray.org; I thought Vim might be lighter in weight, but the modality got in the way, and some of my handy keystrokes were still useful.
The biggest gripes are that it’s not actually running on the tab, I’m not getting Jellybean’s excellent word predictor, and I can’t touch the screen to navigate.
There’s no reason in principle this couldn’t be made to work properly. And for now, if I have to blog in a pinch sans computer, it’s entered the realm of the possible.
