Steno Learnathon at Flatiron School NYC, June 25

The Flatiron School is hosting a Learnathon/Hackathon on June 25, and one of the hacking challenges will be to make a simple, addictive tutorial game for steno beginners. I'll be giving a 45-minute crash course in how steno works and then letting people loose to devise games that teach the steno keyboard layout, simple common words that can be written with one to three keys, and possibly simple chords as well. All participants in the Learnathon/Hackathon will be entered in a raffle where they'll have the chance to win a Planck and/or Steno Hero/Steno Arcade T-shirts. There are still tickets available, so if you're gonna be in NYC that Sunday, come by and give it a try!

The spam problem has gotten worse and worse. It's driving me round the bend. I don't understand why Blogger hasn't been able to solve it. Grrr. But yeah, I'm looking forward to the hackathon too! Spread the word if you know anyone in NYC who might like to come, Anonymous!

Hi, Mirabai.

I was going to suggest moving the comments to Disqus, but I decided instead to do some Googling for these two phrases:

"" "spam"

... and I found, among others, this:

Basically, you would be able to accept or reject any comment through an e-mail just by clicking the "Accept" or "Reject" link in the message.

Hope that helps a bit ....

Thanks, Glen. I turned on comment moderation; hopefully that'll do the trick.
