Only a short one today, but I really enjoyed this article on the BBC today about why we use the Qwerty keyboard configuration.

“Yawn…” you might say but how many of us interact with this system in some way every single day? Most I would think. And although apparently it’s imperfect, I can’t think of a better layout. Which is why I’m no inventor. Alphabetical simply doesn’t work these days; we’re all too used to the Qwerty. Personally I’d freak out if suddenly qwerty disappeared and I had to learn to touch type a different way.
