That’s the basic idea.

In just an afternoon of working on homework, I’ve discovered quite a bit about how I type:

I look at the keyboard a lot more than I was aware.
I hit several keys with the “wrong” finger. For some this isn’t an issue because I was truly touch typing them already, but for others it turns out that I was peeking and using the wrong finger. 
Oddly enough, I’m more accurate on curly braces than square brackets, even though they are on the same keys.
Overall, I’m already seeing improvement in my problem areas and feel I can thoroughly endorse blank keys as a way to really commit to touch typing1.



The fact that it’ll be totally badass to have at my desk at work has not even occurred to me. ↩
