Stuff that works with big

- bigpy lets you use Markdown with big by implementing it as a pre-processing step in Python
- big-themes (website) is a fledgling new repository for big themes. Try one, make one, take one home today.

- If you put an image as the first thing in a slide, it'll become a tiled background. I abused this power in my presentation on project it yourself
