Who is the *current* #1 Keyboard Expert on the Planet?
« on: Wed, 21 May 2014, 14:30:12 »
I'm curious as to whom the Geekhack membership considers to be the current
#1 Keyboard Expert on the Planet
as of May-June 2014. Be honest. I expect some ballot stuffing in certain cases. The results will probably be used to narrow the field for a runoff vote later.

I'll leave this round of voting open for 30 days from today.



To be clear, this is a poll for fun. Not Serious Business®.

Honestly I see what I consider many experts in that list however usually in certain areas, ALPS, OG cherry, Korean Customs, etc, etc

Overall as it stands currently my vote goes to jdcarpe as an overall general expert not necessarily specific to any one area, more of a jack of all trades. :D

And no offense but yeah a few of those guys...not even close  :))

"Reagan was the realization of Barry Goldwater's failed dream that put the GOP on the path to crazytown where it is today. 
He somehow managed to blend the selfish, plutocratic Ayn Randian economic philosophy with fundamental Christianity and wrap it all up into a cowboy, patriotic image that was as phony as George Bush Jr's ranch."

I don't think there really is one overall... everyone specialize in some topic and may be wholly ignorant of others or at the very least quite weak in knowledge in other areas. Some guys are proficient in deep level stuff on how things work, others in obscure vintage stuff, Cherry, Alps, IBM...
Some of those names I have not seen in a very long time around the boards... or ever.

Hopefully the people listed in the poll, and those who aren't, have a good sense of humor about this poll. It is just for fun. :thumb:

Yes, some are obvious hat tips I thought.

I was actually referring to another much newer member. He's getting votes too not sure if people are being funny or not.

I actually did a trade a few years ago with Keyboardlover (for the DS's on the front page of his blog I believe), seemed like a nice. guy.

I can really only imagine a few on the list to qualify for the #1 keyboard expert.
Nevertheless, put matt3o on the list, he really deserves it!

EDIT: hate on Ripster, but he still knows quite a lot!

retspiR has lost a lot of his fire lately. He's not #1 anymore, but he's still pretty smart when he's not bashing us.

HaaTa is probably #1
