What is the best way to sign a PDF document?
It seems like this questions is now a list of ways to sign a pdf document without the need to “print-sign-scan-send” =)Apart from adding KeepSolid Sign as another free alternative to manually sign documents (we are currently in beta), there are couple of interesting ways that the respondents of our recent closed beta testing group shared (we asked more than 230 respondents from different business verticals how they sign / send documents for signing).Particularly, signing with:Apple’s Preview app (the built-in default app for Mac to view pictures, edit and also sign pdfs)Pgp encryption. The approach here would be to open the document in PDF app or in browser, paste your signature, encrypt with the pgp encryption tool like iGolder or built-in solutions for Mozilla, for example.Though, both of these methods still require you to send the final document via email, this is a free alternative if you need to sign documents rarely or just don’t want to pay for a dedicated eSignature solution.Cheers!
What do pianists see when they play the piano?
Literally speaking, their visual impression of the keys isn’t unique. But what they *know* is another thing. Every key is a friend, because its named note (C, C sharp, etc) is ingrained very deeply.Another thing they know is the physical distance their arms need to move to reach the different parts of keyboard. If this sounds trivial to you, I can show you two cases where it’s not:Ask a pianist to sit somewhere other than dead center of the piano, and have them play. It’s very disorienting and cause result in mistakes!Have a pianist sit at a 76-key electronic keyboard and have them play their repertoire. It’s not just a matter of the notes being missing on the left and right ends, it’s that your reference points for distance are messed up.What a pianist sees on the keyboard becomes much more interesting when their hands come in contact with the keys. The human computational machine that knows what to play when, draws on two main resources: music theory and muscle memory. Describing Music Theory is beyond the scope of this question, but muscle memory has a close relationship with the “geography” of the keyboard, which also causes them to see the keyboard in a special way. To me, learning a complex piece, especially a post-19th Century piece that could be fairly opaque to my Music Theory knowledge, is a matter a remembering gestures. Perhaps its similar to signing for the hearing impaired, or even normal human speech. You don’t speak a sentence by consciously constructing a sequence of phonemes, or even individual words. Rather phrases like “garage door opener” have a certain body english to them, something you toss off with a familiar pattern of intonation and syllabic emphasis. With the keyboard, each moment is a learned pattern of hand movement in interaction with the shape of the keys. One moment, your hand is arched high over the black keys, and a split second later it is flat and slanting to the left. One thing that might be surprising to non-musicians, is that attempting to play a learn piece in another key practically requires learning it from scratch because the ‘key geography’ completely changes.

Why does Adrian Lamo write 'Gentle Reader' at the end of every blog?
He's not alone!Addressing the reader in a piece of writing, especially with phrases such as "Gentle Reader" was common in the Victorian era. For example, this particularly irritating passage by Charlotte Brontë, from her book, Jane EyreGentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt! May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. Etc.Here are some more entertaining examples of the use of this phrase, mostly in Victorian times - http://www.finedictionary.com/Ge.... It's not surprising to see this pop up in sentimental novels and poetry, but downright funny to imagine it popping up in the news, and even academia. In an article written in a humourous vein, titled "Astrophysics in 2006" (Page on arxiv.org):Gentle readers who gently read about the re-assembling of the Antikythera device (Wright 2005) may been pleasantly surprised that they didn’t seem to have any parts left over.Chew on that!This literary device has fallen out of favour these days, barring some quaint, fanciful forms of writing. In particular, Agony Aunt or Etiquette Specialist columns still use this sort of phrasing.This form of address can get jarring when one reads it in fiction, because it tends to draw one out of the story world, and back into the real world, reminding one that one is reading. However, I suspect it's very useful to build this sort of connection with one's readership base in an online community like Quora, or the blogosphere. It sounds as if the writer is speaking directly to you, the reader, drawing you in.Maybe Mr. Lamo uses the phrase a tad flippantly, as is also evident from his answer! It's just funny that someone uses a whimsical, old-fashioned phrase when writing about the topics that he writes about. He's probably not doing it consciously, but it serves as a handy signature catchphrase for his writing.If you look around on Quora, you'll see other writers do similar things. Some writers end their answers with a "My $0.02", which they probably append as a self-deprecatory device, unnecessary in my view."Gentle reader" is a harmless way to draw the reader in, and also a cheeky tip of the hat to a fussy old writing style, anachronistic when seen in the context of the content of his answers.
