Hands up everyone here who's bothered learning to speed-read. I'm going to
guess one, maybe two hands will be raised. How many still use it on a
regular basis? One of the two hands, I suspect, goes down.
We have lots of I/O bandwidth already (as long as you're not suffering from
carpal tunnel syndrome - if you are, or have done, ask for a soft touch
keyboard or whatever is the right phrase to use; if anyone knows what is,
please let me know).
The bottleneck is using it.
