John Zeratsky Is a Markdown Convert

This is the nicest write-up about Markdown I’ve seen.

John Zeratsky:

It’s based on the way people write email, which makes it very easy to pick up. And at every turn, the syntax makes sense. Things look like what they mean, and this is no coincidence. In fact, I’ve gotten better at “formatting” my emails since I started using Markdown. For me, it’s better to use the same conventions in all my writing rather than try to remember a bunch of systems.
