How could a humble 15th Century craftsman affect the course of civilization so dramatically? By virtue of a single invention: the printing press, he attained the status that we now acclaim. This was the spark that transformed education, technology, and culture. It ushered in the modern era of exponential growth and unprecedented prosperity.

Here's what the guts of the above paragraph looks like when we "Split" it open in Speare. Note: you can split a paragraph by clicking the down arrow in the top left corner of any building block."
