“Supermemo” for specific subset of people????
My mind struggles very much to comprehend many questions stated repeatedly in discussion groups as well as many blogs, why you don’t try to make supermemo universal. This is so, because I believe that a more universal supermemo would make possible filling the gap of self-making each and every one of the items to memorize. I’m very lazy, I want to do the least to make the most of my time on more things, very oxymoronic as it sounds.
I finished reading reading previously commented interview. Many aspects strike me as surprise, every body in supermemo world were already aware of most of the things we constantly complain or at least talk about, even Dr Wozniak it self acknowledges simplicity, yet on a closing statement he goes on showing that for him SuperMemo is a program made for some and firmly states:
“My brand” of SuperMemo will always please only a very specific and small subset of people. However displeasing that is, I gotta live with this awareness. (Piotr Wozniak)

In response to you, Nattan, yes it looks like SuperMemo is made the way it is like some kind of locked door for those who don’t like the hard work, perhaps “laws of thermodinamics says that life shouldn’t be easy” but being lazy as I’m, we should try to make it easier (e.a. more effective). Lazy as I’m. I wouldn’t stop digging for diamonds because there is too much dirt to dig through (There’s even on the subject: Tree feet from gold), so I’ll love my supermemo for life and if ever dissapears I’ll have to perfect my programing skills are pays some one to build one again.
