iAMA Grandmaster of Memory and startup CEO named Ed Cooke. I can memorise a 1000 digit number in an hour, and a shuffled deck of cards in 45s. I was the memory coach in Moonwalking with Einstein. Now working on Memrise, a free online tool for memo...
My short bio: Hey there Reddit, I'm Ed Cooke. I'm a memory hacker, and the co-founder / CEO of Memrise, which helps you remember languages and other information as fast as humanly possible, all for free. We got a fun subreddit here. On Memrise, you learn through memes, which make everything more memorable.
In other lives, I've done lots of writing. I wrote a book, was memory correspondent for the Times and did a guest piece for Tim Ferriss' the Four Hour Chef on learning cards.
