Chucksville:
Getting a Grip
by Charles Reuben : "...My naturally-curved fingers don’t hover over the keys in an awkward, two-dimensional plane. Instead, they slip comfortably around the keyboard and the downward pressure of my fingers, as well as those muscles above and on the side of my fingers, create the pressure necessary to activate a keystroke."
