Fixing Paul Graham’s Footnotes
11th March 2005
I’m a big fan of Paul Graham’s essays, the latest of which is How to Start a Startup. There’s just one niggling problem with them: Paul makes extensive use of footnotes, but provides no way of jumping from the reference in the text to the footnote at the bottom of the page and back up again. Instead, you have to manually down to the bottom of the article and back up again every time you hit a footnote reference.
I really should be finishing up my packing for SxSW (my bus leaves in an hour and a half), but I couldn’t resist knocking up a quick greasemonkey script to fix the problem. Install and enjoy. If you haven’t installed greasemonkey you can get the same effect by manually activating this bookmarklet: Fix Paul Graham’s Footnotes.
