The Lost Art of Typing - No one Special

This quote was added by shaken1976
I remember when I was in high school and taking a keyboarding class. We had this unmarked keyboard and had to type just from memory. The old Hunt-and-Peck method wouldn't work out well for a student. Now instead of typing on an actual keyboard, everyone uses their phone or tablets to do most things that used to require a computer. Kids have fast thumbs... but their fingers are slow.

My middleschool computer science class was so cheap that the keyboards we would use to practice with were just laminated pieces of paper with the keyboard keys printed onto it.

This just feels weird to think about, being someone that spent enough time to learn dvorak and perfect touch typing in middle school. Now I might try giving people in my school blank keyboard out of curiosity.
