Hand Over Key

There's a reason why C.S. Lewis--for one--wrote his books by hand, relying on others to type them up for him.

Writing things out by hand, while a slower pace, forces you to think more critically about meaning, about the structure of thought, and about what is important in what you hear.

New research is coming in and--while I've been beating the drum that old-school methods are more in line with how our brains function--it's nice to see evidence-based confirmation of that.

The report is here. While I am no technology-bashing Luddite, we really need to see the sense of this report.

Digest it and give feedback...I'd love to know your thoughts.
