yesterday i realized formally, that keybinding design is a linear programing problem. 100 variables & constraints.

• you have about 60 to 110 key spots.
• control key must only be in certain places. else can't work.
• control key is mostly used with a set X of keys, but not other. e.g. copy paste open new keys.
• this set X must be in a spot that works with ctrl as chord hand can do.
• you want just 1 control key if possible, to save key spots.
• each keyspot has a score, corresponding to hand physiology.
• each keyspot score varies by keyboard and person.
• some key has sequential function, such as menu and alt key.
• key's cmd has a frequency profile. it varies by person and OS/App.

As you may have read, Kinesis sponsored CodeDay Seattle this past Saturday. CodeDay is a 24-hour code-a-thon for high-school & college age students put on by not-for-profit StudentRND in 34 cities nationwide. This was the most successful CodeDay with record participation and diversity numbers. Kinesis donated Freestyle2 Blue keyboards and put together a “Healthy Coding” briefing to educate the next generation of software engineers (and their parents) about ergonomics and to encourage them to take care of their bodies so that they can have long and productive careers. If you have a child age 14-22 who is interested in learning more about computers, the next CodeDay is set for February 13, 2016. https://codeday.org

UNIX/Linus user Matt L actually types faster on his Kinesis Advantage than he ever did on a conventional keyboard. We're not joking when we say Comfort and Productivity. Read his story and then see what the Advantage can do for your productivity.

Here is a very thoughtful, longterm review of the Kinesis Advantage originally published in 2009. Following the initial trial period the author was somewhat skeptical of the keyboard's price, durability and ergonomic benefits but in his May 2014 update he notes that the Advantage has proved to be quite durable and is now his keyboard of choice: "I can still use normal keyboards but prefer not to".

What's your favorite feature on the Advantage keyboard? For Canadian software engineer Jon S it's definitely the vertical (non-staggered) key layout. Did you know that the reason modern keyboards use a staggered configuration is because staggering keys was necessary to accommodate the levers in a typewriter. Fast forward 150 years and most people are still using a staggered layout keyboard even though its much more comfortable to type on a vertical layout.
