Deckset on Show

I’m a big fan of markdown as a way of writing. I generate most of my content in Markdown using Byword for Mac[1] and Byword for iOS, supported by tools like Editorial, MultiMarkdown Composer, nvAlt and Marked.

These tools allow me to put together blog posts, as well as write articles, reports, training programs and even books. The cool thing is that with Markdown I can write once and then reuse the same content easily in multiple formats.

Now I can use Markdown to create brilliant presentations using a new Mac app called Deckset (available in the Mac App Store). The following Slideshare presentation—created in Deckset and embedded here[2]—is my review of Deckset.

The short version—Deckset for Mac is great. Go get it.

Grant W Graves—the guru of Soggy Science

My friend and mentor Grant W Graves is not only a diving guru[1] but is also a degree qualified marine scientist. In the diving world, Grant is one of the foremost connectors in the industry. He literally knows everyone in diving.

Last December Grant launched a new initiative—Soggy Science. Soggy Science is a weekly video roundup of news about the aquatic world.

Divers everywhere will enjoy the way he makes nerdy topics fun and approachable.


  1. Grant is a PADI Course Director; a Technical Diving Instructor-Trainer with PADI and TDI; a DAN Examiner; and is President of the US Freediving Association among other qualifications.  ↩
