Why This Keyboard Forms a Skyline

Keyboard island, ho! Although what looks at first like random keystroke skyscrapers is actually much more purposeful; each button visualizes how often you use it. We are an E-crazed people, indeed.

If nothing else, Michael Knuepfel's ITP project shows just how effective the QWERTY layout is. Well, at least if the Wikipedia data Knuepfel used is anywhere near accurate. I just wish that non-letters had been included; my Delete key would just about reach the ceiling. [Michael Knuepfel via PSFK via TwentyTwoWords via The High Definite]

"If nothing else, Michael Knuepfel's ITP project shows just how effective the QWERTY layout is"

You're joking, right? This shows just how ineffective the QWERTY layout is. The top three or four most used letters aren't even in the home row, and for the letters that are in the home row we're using the outside much more than the inside. That makes absolutely no sense.
