Reason behind QWERTY keyboards

Ever wonder why keys are in the
order they’re in on the keyboard?
It’s actually because the original keyboards
would jam if letters that were next to each
other were pressed in too rapid succession.
In 1874 Christopher Sholes, who developed the
layout, was aiming to slow typists down by
putting the most common letters in the most
hard to reach places, and thus reduce jamming.
Although modern technology has no issue with
jamming, the keyboard stuck and is still the one
we use today!
