Word power

A Barcelona-based design group has developed OmmWriter, an elegant word processing program to help scribes do more meaningful clickty-clacks and less window browsing. This latest version is called Dāna, and it’s completely free:


I admire how stunningly simple the interface is — the few options in the free (ie light) version let you choose from a few fonts, backgrounds, keystroke clicks and ambient sounds. (PC users are out of luck, for now.)

Yeah, the whole project is a little bit cliché-Buddhist. But Ommwriter does elevate the keyboard-and-glowing-rectangle experience to something approaching the sublime.
