@xahlee Is there currently a better alternative to learning to touch-type? Last night I wrote a 3100-word essay in 144 minutes — on average it was only 21 words per minute, but I type 60 wpm, and so if I only hunt-and-pecked 20 wpm, it would have taken another 100 minutes, and the typing would have interrupted my thinking a lot more.

@kragen
i think touch typing is still the best way for writers.
alt would probably be voice dictation.
i mad a vid of it yester using Mac's voice dictation feature. It's available on win too, but not sure linux's status.

dictation is very good for chat kinda text.
