Unlike my last post, this one is ser­i­ous. One of my favour­ite podac­sts, The Linux Link Tech Show, inter­viewed RSI expert Deborah Quilter. The phe­nomen­on of RSI has ris­en to prom­in­ence in recent years, largely in response to increas­ing com­puter use. That puts tech work­ers such as myself in con­sid­er­able risk of devel­op­ing injur­ies, and in fact I am cer­tain that I have developed some already. Ignor­ing the prob­lem only makes it worse. Any­one who works at a desk should listen to this inter­view and heed at least some of its warn­ings and advice.

The epis­ode is avail­able in Ogg Vor­bis and MP3 formats.
