I changed my display name from “Jian Shuo Wang @ Beijing” to “Jain Suho Wnag @ Bieijng” three days ago and kept the wrong spelling for every word till just now. I received more than 10 queries about why I changed it this way. My friends are nice and they reminded me that I spelled my name wrong or spelled Beijing wrong. Haha. It was an experiment and it was just for fun.
Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.
Tihs is inteserting. I chnaged my nmae and poeple siltl fnid it esay to recgonize my nmae or the ctiy nmae :-D
haha, this is fun. indeed, i raed the seocnd and third paragraph without mcuh diffciluty, though this partciular entry wiil be unintelliglble to Google.
Good work. This trick is being used widely by spammers to avoid blocking. Also by propaganda departments to devise ways to deliver information into forbidden territories. WJS, perhaps you should study its use in encryption and in antihacking.
Similarly, Chinese is a written (symbol) language and the cao-shu style totally changes the characters and people have no problem reading them because they are reading the characters as a whole (picture) without minding the individual strokes.
Really a trickle.
Bigbro, I am thinking of a way to encrypt fonts. I will show you about it very soon (within one month).
