Watch the process of writing

Screenshot of Stypi Paul Graham has written about the process of writing. He uses a tool called Stypi that allows you to collaboratively edit a piece of text and view the editing process in a video replay. He had a special version of Stypi made that shows text that will be deleted in the final version in yellow. It’s interesting to watch the process of text being written. It looks like a sentence is either right the first time, or else it gets rewritten many times.
