”Have you ever asked yourself why the letters of a typewriter’s keyboard are placed in the order they are?
- No, I have never asked myself that question.
- We can call this keyboard QWERTY, the first keys of the upper row are placed like that.
The first typewriter was evened by Christopher Scholes in 1873, in order to improve the calligraphy. However, soon a problem arose, when the type arms strikes against each other and made it impossible to write.
Then Christopher Scholes designed the keyboard QWERTY, a keyboard which should force the user to write more slowly and not faster. The typewriter's as well as the computer's keyboards were from the beginning designed for slower writing and not faster”.
