The BBC have published this really interesting article stating that the art of handwriting is slowly dying. The author thinks that a hundred years from now, our great-grandchildren will have to go to a handwriting expert to decipher our letters.
It’s true that I’m writing less than ever before – my hand aches after writing out a few addresses, whereas I could churn out a few pages at school without thinking anything of it.
We can’t do everything on computers, there will always be a need to jot something down quickly. Do you believe that no-one will be able to understand the written (as apposed to the typed) word in a hundred years time? Do you write anything down anymore, or do you do everything on your computer? I’d be really interested to hear your thoughts.
