The recent article on the New York Times entitled What’s Lost As Handwriting Fades is too good to wait until the end of the week for a Link Love so I decided to go ahead an post the link today. Once again, scientists are coming up with studies proving that there’s some tricky cognitive stuff that goes on when we write things by hand and there is even some data that different parts of the brain are triggered depending on whether its printing or script (cursive) writing.

But we all knew this already, right?

  1. I’ve written about this myself;
    And I still maintain that one’s handwriting is as distinctive as their voice and should therefore be practised and preserved.
    My cousin is a secondary school teacher and he said that not much emphasis is placed on handwriting these days.
    “Can you tell me one job nowadays that still requires handwriting?”, he asked me.
    Saddest thing I’ve heard in a long time.
