This is great:
Via this boing boing entry comes this link to DVzine.org’s The Dvorak zine, which is a great comic making an impassioned plea to use the more efficient and logical typing keyboard design developed by a guy named Dvorak. Besides tapping into my geeky love of all sorts of different writing technologies and my enjoyment of comics, it strikes me as the kind of thing that could be good to incorporate into some teaching.
The comments on the boing boing post are kind of interesting, too. Basically, the folks posting here who converted to Dvorak liked it and found it more comfortable, but they didn’t typically type any faster. It’s good to learn that just about any computer can be converted to Dvorak for practice though.
