comment How do I get faster at typing when you already have a decent speed?
I don't think that writing my last thousand post of about the length of your posts did change my writing speed by a significant amount.

Rosetta Stone is not using Spaced Repetition which makes it a way of learning that prone to forgetting stuff over the long term.

If you have bad posture you spent a lot of energy on tensing up your muscles.

comment Is it possible to learn while sleeping?
For a lot of learning tasks beta waves are better than alpha waves. The idea that one should be in alpha for every task isn't supported by research.

comment Effect of treadmill desk on productivity
This is offtopic. When we talk about treadmill desks we usually aren't talking about fast speeds. We are talking about slow speeds and much more time than 3x30 per week.

comment What is a good algorithm for spaced review?
Anki is flexible enough that you can simply remove time limits. As a practical matter it however makes time to break tasks down into smaller chunks.

comment Pictures for language learning
I think language learning is a clear part of life hacking in general. It's a topic that gets discussed on personal development/life hacking blogs. My life hacking proposal got merged into the Personal Productivity proposal. On meta on this website there's an agreement to broaden the scope. Even in the faq there written that 'learning' is a part of the website.

comment Memorizing Facts
The first question goes against the principle of having as little information as possible on a card. There no reason why the information whether it's eukaryotic or prokaryotic cells should be on the same card that says something about mitosis being about the division of paired chromosomes.

comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
There was a parser for converting Google Notebook files into Evernote when Google Notebook shut down. There's nothing that makes open source software inherently future proof. Someone has to support it. Supporting software is much more work than writing a simple parser. Maybe the parser will have a problem with handwritten notes but writing a parser that just get the text doesn't even take a day of work. TidiWiki won't give you handwritten notes anyway.

comment How do I get faster at typing when you already have a decent speed?
Without knowing how fast you were before you started saying that your speed is 65WPM is meaningless. The intention of this thread wasn't to get a list of services that I can easily find via a Google search. It was about knowing which of those services actually help people to improve their speed for a reasonable time investment.

What does "useful" mean. What WPM did you had before you started with Typeracer. How much hours did you spent over what timeframe to get to what WPM?
