Writing it Down

Tinderbox gets a minor (but thrilling!) role in a very real-life medical thriller: Alwin Hawkins writes up "Chilling Out the Burger King."

Then I remembered some things I had stuck away in an old Tinderbox file. The act of writing them down - of typing them into storage for future use - had marked them as *IMPORTANT* and glued them into my personal knowledge base. The data popped to the top of my "stack" and I had an idea on how to damp this positive feedback cycle that had been set into motion.
