My review of @technomancy's keyboard kind of got away from me – it ended up at over 5,000 words.

What can I say? It's a *really* good keyboard, and it turns out that I had a lot to say!

@codesections thanks for the kind words. I like the way you went from explaining the shift key into explaining fn as "another shift".

the part where you talk about gradually evolving your layout over time made me think of the Minimak layout, which makes a series of small improvements to slowly transition from Qwerty to Colemak; have you heard of it? minimak.org/

Thanks!

A bit, but I decided that, if I'm taking my time, I could aim at something a bit more extreme – so I'm working toward something inspired by the arensito layout, pvv.org/~hakonhal/main.cgi/key
