“I was afraid of the Internet… because I couldn’t type.” Jack Welch
Decades of professional observation, show that the three worst styles of hunt and peck typing, computer keyboarding are:
Quick 2-finger hunt and pecking – rapid hit on any key followed by lots of backspacing and deleting to correct lots of mistakenly hit keys
60 second gaze hunt and pecking – gaze at everything on the keyboard for about 30 to 60 seconds before very apprehensively pressing the right key
One finger hunt and mash pecking – hovering over the keyboard with one finger then banging down too hard on the right key
People who can key at a rate of 15 accurate words or more a minute with both hands may truly have a more enjoyable Internet usage experience than those who do not key at all or, especially when typing/keying for professional and school needs.

Imagine a world where there are no keyboarding/tying input devices. We call this the day my computer keyboards quit! If data entry computers quit, you might want to cover your ears. There is likely to be a lot going on like hollering, yelling, screeching, and maybe cussing, too. Imagine a conversation like this.
Child to iVana: Type the essay for school for me.
iVanna to Child: I am not programmed to type your school papers. My artificial intelligence does tell me to tell you to think and type for yourself, Child. I quit!
