Memory

Sunday, April 27, 2008 by Stephen

Stephen is out sick today; his RSI is really getting to him. So today I am writing as he dictates about his new excitement over memory-assisting software.

Stephen says:

A few years ago, my friend Shane introduced me to the idea of spaced repetition in learning. The other day I read this article on wired.com about a guy who wrote a program called SuperMemo, which facilitates spaced repetition learning. Then I found an open-source program called Mnemosyne, which does a similar thing. Rachel helped me download Mnemosyne and plug in an example flashcard with an equation on it. It may have a few bugs, but it seems to work alright. Once my hands get better, I plan to write a script to format some Bible verses as flashcards. I apologize to all of you who are on the edge of your seat waiting for my new Bible memory system. Unfortunately, Rachel refuses to write the script for me.

Rachel says:

Thanks for your patience.
