I would just completely ignore C, but so many projects out there use it and I'm helpless when it comes to making modifications to them or contributing to the projects code-wise.

[ambrus]: (either on just one screen or two screens). this is necessary because
[ambrus]: overhead slide plus blackboard is inconvenient because the lighting conditions are different and they require separate areas you can't quickly repartition, and typing on keyboard is faster and more convenient than writing on a blackboard
[Corion]: (b) would be cool. I've thought about this doing Pod editing, and even simply regenerating/live updating the browser makes things much more interactive
[ambrus]: modern computers have way enough processing power to allow this, at least for geeks who are willing to spend a few weeks to learn a tricky new user interface like vim
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, for mathematical notation, I find blackboard much more convenient than a computer. But when inserting text or moving text around, the computer wins obviously
[ambrus]: But either of these is a big problem in practice, so I'd need to spend like thirty years of my life to solve (a) and five more years to solve (b)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, CURRENTLY the blackboard is more convenient
[ambrus]: and it's not like I want to ban blackboards anyway
[ambrus]: you already have blackboards and a canvas for projector or overhead transparencies (or positive film slide projector, not used for maths) canvas in the same lecture halls today, and switch in a few minutes between presentations,
[ambrus]: they're only difficult to use together.
