Art of Chording on Hacker News

This is a bit late, but did y'all see that Art of Chording, the WIP textbook of our illustrious leader Ted, made Hacker News? Pretty good discussion over there! Proud as ever of Ted and his ambassadorship.

Pretty New Hardware

Just some pretty pictures to look at today! First up, Ted's newly hand-soldered Planck Lite with the keytoppers off for maximal rainbow effect:
Flat profile board with no keytoppers and rainbow lights illuminating each switch
Next, Bill's Cougar Attack-X3 RGB with 3D printed steno keytoppers:
Animated GIF showing a person hitting steno keytoppers and making a keyboard light up
And finally, a cool but complex low profile system from crides:
Several flat systems all hooked together with wires and multicolored electronic bundles
Not sure what exactly is going on here, but I like it!

How Steno Works

How Steno Works, a new essay for people who are curious about the nuts and bolts of steno, is now live on Art of Chording! It's a fantastic introductory resource for people who have no frame of reference for stenographic technology. If you've ever tried to explain steno to someone and given up in frustration, this is the resource for you! It's even got an interactive animation showing steno chords in action. Great stuff from the amazing Ted, as always.
