Arthur told me about this site which discusses the shuffle steering technique. It kind of reminds me of the shirt folding video. It's simple technique, but has significant advantages over the "standard" practice.
There was an article in Invention & Technology a few months ago about typewriters which mentioned the development of touch typing. It's funny to think that in the early days of typewriters, everyone would "hunt and peck". One of the first touch-typists astounded people by being able to type while blind-folded. Today, probably most typists touch type. Ironically, I'm not one of them. I learned to touch type in high school, but I've been doing a weird sort of three fingered typing since I was ten years old, and I've never been able to shake it. :-/
