Notes on Howard Berg of IamSpeedReading.com

Howard Berg [IamSpeedReading.com], holds the World Record for World’s Fastest Reader, at 80 pages a minute.

One safe place in his neighborhood – the Library.
Don’t teach learning at school.
People don’t want to read faster, they want to learn smarter and learn more.
Speed up when you want to and slow down when you need to.
220 Words we can talk in our head.
Tap into the movie in the book.
Disconnect from hearing with my eyes and open the book to see the movie.
Hearing is one chunk at a time.
Seeing takes in tons of information immediately.
Read for a minute.
Mark where you end after a minute.
Use your finger along the line with your eye following your hand.
Go until you get to the ceiling of how fast you can absorb the visual data.
The brain wires up, when you do things repeatedly. Your speed goes up even further.
70% Drop out rate in two year college; 50% Drop out rate in four year college
Six years on average to finish a four year degree.
Can read, write, and count fast enough.
Information doubles every six months.
Unsubstantiated quote: “More information printed daily in the New York Times than the person in the 18th century learned in their who life time.”

I am a technologist with a strong background in software engineering. I have many interests. My current distractions are 70s-80s-90s music [it's a very eclectic collection], ontology, information architecture, mobile device technology, medical bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and nanorobotics.
