First of all, thanks to J+K for bringing us and the model 01 together…
I’ve really enjoyed reading all the comments, thoughts, ideas, civil discussions, etc. on here and thought it would be nice to know more about the community…
Sort of an Hi, I’m blah. (kinda like AA without all the drama).
Some ice breakers:
What brought you to the model 01?
What other boards have you used?
How or what makes you excited about getting the model 01?
Jonathan Phan - Southern California, just south of where J+K live, they may be losing their football team (not soccer) here in the near future.
I work in IT and due to RSI, I’ve been looking/always kept my eye out for ergo keyboards, currently use the kinesis and type matrix. When the M01 came out I was sold, especially when J+K made there way to LA where I got to try it out. I don’t do long and continuous typing anymore but am always looking for better ways of doing things… Layouts I’ve tried - dvorak, colemak, workman. I’m super excited to get my hands on a M01, the added benefit is it’ll be that much harder to “pink bunny” me.
What is pink bunny you ask? Its when you leave your terminal unlocked and a fellow co worker sends an email to your distro group + choice friends that “I like pink bunnies”. Its a nice way of saying minor breach of security, lock your workstation… Right now, I rarely get pink bunnied, because the kinesis prevents that, people have to use OSK, with the M01 + rune keys, it’ll probably never happen (again).
I don’t write firmware so thank you to all those that do that and are willing to do it for the community (@algernon). Thank you to you multilingual aficionados for helping design the layout (@antevens). @bjn, @andrewg, @merlin and everyone else that have contributed to this project, kept the discussions lively, proposed great ideas, etc.
