Tinderbox and offline blogging

Vlad Spears talks about using Tinderbox to blog when you're not connected to the net. This is a very useful point, especially when you're on the road -- as I'll be starting tomorrow.

We often think that server-side tools (Blogger, WordPress) are good on the road, because you can use them from a borrowed machine or a random cafe. That's true. But client-side Tinderbox lets you write it down when you're in the wilderness or on the plane. You can edit, too -- and that can be almost as important as writing stuff down in the first place.
