    I heard about you on Freakonomics. I, too, write shorthand, and use it often. I learned in high school, and used it for notes in college.

    1. I’m always glad to hear that people are still using shorthand. A couple years ago, I interviewed the last court reporter in Hawaii who still used shorthand instead of the stenograph machine. She wrote over 200 words a minute, and could take shorthand in English, Hawaiian, and Filipino. Pretty cool!
