Tim Crews on Vi Emulation on Emacs for the Rubyist

In the spirit of the season, Time would do his part for Peace on Earth and give a 15 to 30-minute presentation on using Vi emulation in Emacs. (This is where he spends at least 12 hours of every day of his life, so he has it down to a science.) He'll briefly present what he considers the benefits of Emacs (especially for multiple-language development), with some overview of its capabilities for Ruby development.
