Large Letters for greater creativity

December 11th, 2008 • 1 min read #productivity

I've recently upped the font sizes in Textmate and the terminal.

It makes me feel like my code is more beautiful, somehow.

Maybe it's because whenever I watch a brilliant hacker give a technical talk, they put their screens up on the projector and live-code with super-large type.

Perhaps it reduces the amount of stuff that fits on my screen to a more elegant "that which matters." Too much text via smaller font makes it difficult to focus.

It's a cognitive hack for creativity.
