Blogging with the Logitech Pen

There's a new batch of Coding4Fun articles up, including (finally) my article on blogging from a Logitech io2 pen, lovingly titled "Do you like me? Check this box."

In case you hadn't heard, Logitech has a great .NET SDK for their Logitech io2 pen. It's more than just a gadget, they've wrapped a whole platform around this thing. It's even been used at the G8 summit for non-technical diplomat-types to take and share notes.

Basically I integrated BlogJet, the rocking sweet and only ever-so slightly over-priced offline blogging application, with the pen. I can take notes with the pen, on regular paper, and if there's something blog worthy in my prose, I can have it sent directly to DasBlog or any compatible blogging engine. The article also uses Visual Studio 2005 to build a .NET 1.1 assembly, which is also interesting, IMHO.

Scott, does the smart paper is required for writing with the pen?
