  1. Huh. Honestly, I’ve often felt what this title says. I was very much on the fence — why learn how to type? — and only took the class as a time-filler or credit-accumulator, but touch-typing stood me in good stead all through life.

    “working to develop a way to connect computers to human thoughts”

    Surely computers have access to cat videos and pron.


  2. Personal typing in high school as a college prep course. Then never ‘typed’ a term paper. I did program a lot on hollerith cards, then teletype and decwriter type terminals. Out side of math, typing has been one of the most useful classes I ever took.
