Friday, July 18, 2014: 8:00 pm (Olson): Do you experience numbness or weakness in your hands? Do you have a permanent case of Emacs pinky? Are you playing vi golf for your health?

This talk will examine potential solutions to the repetitive strain injuries commonly experienced by computer users, including: head-based cursor control, ultra-ergo keyboards, foot pedals, and other optimizations.
