Yea, I got nothing to say about this but I just want to say that I've been staring at Sara Petterson's midsection for days now and it's making me really, really, really, really sad.

Because I've never seen anyone who looks like that in real life.

I wonder if Morse is still faster

I would really like to know why they're defunding the title. Is it too expensive to maintain?

I'm just shocked the winner was a male.

Query from Snapper Carr whether Morse code is still faster. MBrady types Definitely, InternetSecurityGuard types ,-. .-. (r r), Matty Blast types I submitted this more quickly. I type Depends on who's sending.
Found this via GoodSearch: Les Edwards using Morse code sent the prescribed 160 character message to Ray Carter. Ray received the message by a Morse code receiver and then typed it onto a piece of paper using an old fashioned typewriter in 1 minute and 8 seconds on the set of Guinness World Records at Seven Network Studios, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, on 27 August 2005. They were competing against James Trusler (UK) who were texting and sending a SMS with the same message. Texting required 1 minute and 16 seconds. on Dailymotion
So Morse is faster after all, or was then! But it's not something I am personally able to do, even at 5 words per minute!

160 characters in 1 minute 8 seconds equates to about 25 words per minute. That is, 5 characters is considered a word with numbers, punctuation and prosigns counting as two characters. That's about my comfortable speed. I know some operators that can blow my doors off at up to 45 WPM.

InternetSecurityGuard, I've heard of folk who've been clocked at 50-60 wpm. But not by Guinness Bk of Records.

As long he doesn't do it while driving, who cares?

Morse is faster, and you can still do it while you're driving. Just last week, I contacted PY2MC in Brazil using Morse while driving.

Are you a ham? I try to favorite all hams for the next Fark QSO party.

Oh, and I bet I can copy faster than you ;-)
