Writing away the future

I think handwriting and calligraphy is going to become extinct one day. We seem to draw closer and closer to a Jetsons type Push-button age.

I tried writing on paper today and I realized my hands had become weak and my handwriting had gone from bad to worse. I think if I continue like this I just might forget how to write. Or even if I remember how to write I don’t think my hand would be able to handle the new skill. In fact I can now type faster than I can write.

And I wondered, would my kids/grandkids ever learn to write with a pen or pencil? If not my kids, I am sure my grandkids are gonna start with a laptop, instead of a pencil and a paper. I bet their first printout would be at the age of 2!

  5. Agree. I find it very hard to write continuously for more than 20 minutes. Can type for hours together with no break though 😦 Plus my handwriting has gone to dogs.

    So, as a remedy, I don’t carry my laptop to meetings these days. Instead, I take a notebook to write down things discussed.
