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®.

I knew I missed someone...

In fact, I missed a bunch of people obviously. Feel free to write in your vote in this thread. Hah!


Okay, all the Keepers are listed now, and no mods or admins (or moderator emeriti). :))

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  :))

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!

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

Needs more Japanese masters: sandy, mousefan + rzwv
I'm not as familiar with the Chinese ones but: alps.tw
IBM Master: ch_123/daedalus
Some of the classic Geekhackers: chloe, rdjack21 (previous Topre Master)
Topre Master: OO2

lysol for sure.
So whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. (...) All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I'd like to vote, but sincerely I do not have any way to discriminate, or define a relative position for the members in the list as experts. I have read some good tips from some in the list, but I have not seen any of some others.


In the other hand I may be biased for have been in contact directly with some others, for example Ivan.


Finally I really do not get the point in voting for #1 KB Expert. It may be fun but I cannot see any benefit. Maybe I need to be enlighten by the elders.

Since when have polls been re-enabled???? DON'T ENABLE THEM FOR MW!!!!

Anyway, I've noticed some of you pointing out some people as #1 switch-specific experts, this person knows more about this, and this person knows more about that, blah blah etc. But we're talking about the #1 KEYBOARD expert. Meaning not necessarily the person who's best in one thing, but someone who's all-around GOOD at MOST things keyboard related.

Take that into account when voting people.

Oh, and I abstain.

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

I think there has been a mistake I wasn't able to click on my name.
