| Abstract: When things get old and big, things get weird. Emacs has survived some things you might (or might not) have heard of: the editor wars, five version control systems, its own church, the Emacs pinky, and elisp, only to grow in strange capabilities (like tetris) and oddities (how is this compiled exactly?). Don't worry, beginners! We'll talk about how to get started with this too, and bring you in on all the jokes, but if anyone wants to come correct me on the finer points of org-mode, that's great too.
