Every now and then, you come across an idea so revolutionary that it is greeted with Schopenhauer's now-classic formulation (I am paraphrasing here): "it won't work, it is trivial, and besides we already do it that way". I believe we may be witnessing a (kill me now) paradigm shift in text input for small personal electronic devices that will revolutionise the industry by freeing devices that operate on text input from the size constraints that keep them at a certain minimum form factor. The system is called Dasher and it comes from a research group at the University of Cambridge. Watch the Google lecture series video on it, download the beta software and then play with it. Oh and, yes, I did write this blog entry using it :)
