Paul Graham recently wrote an essay. And saved all his edits, so you can replay it in entirety just as he wrote it
.* It's quite fascinating to see if you ever wondered how he (or other writers) went about their job. And here's the Hacker News thread
he initiated. This can be a very useful tool to watch and understand your own writing process, or understand and help your students write. Like cvs/svn mirror for long form writing.* - make sure that you don't let the link hang in the background and come to it after 15 minutes, because by then the essay would have replayed through the edits and look like a bland text page. The controls at the top are a bit non-intuitive if you don't know what you are looking for. I tripped up, so I thought I'd warn others.
