I initially drafted this in OmniOutliner, because it’s not really a ‘blog post’ rather an evergreen piece of information.
But I wanted to put it online. Publishing out of OmniOutliner is terrible. I resorted to using a ‘save as markdown’ extension, that didn’t actually work - it only gave me a plain text file.
Then I used iA Writer to reconstruct the post into a markdown format so I could put it on my Blot site.
If there’s one thing that OmniOutliner needs to prioritise, it’s making OmniOutliner a better citizen for web-publishing. I would have loved this post to remain as an outline - sort of how Dave Winer’s Little Outliner can create pages. Instead, I had to revert it to Markdown.
It’s an opportunity going begging, in my opinion.
