Project began as a quick and dirty programming task – I needed to try out proskomma, a library for parsing and querying USFM. After doing that verification work, I later realized that it might be fruitful to attempt to build a scripture-reading environment for my personal use. To my surprise and delight, using to read scripture and take notes has been a boon for my thinking and creativity about scripture-reading environments and managing knowledge in the form of annotations.
