Mark Cuban blogs about finding himself in a meeting without any technology he can type or thumb type on. End conclusion – he’s forgotten how to do cursive script effectively. I was a bit skeptical at first (because I *love* to write even though I can type) but looking at the comments, a whole slew of people pop up to tell the same story – someone says “isn’t that like doing math without a calculator or excel?” A student, who’s “too poor to own a laptop” recounts the cycle he goes through when he doesn’t have access to a computer – someone else says “Just don’t try to write cursive. Its more dead than Latin is.” The general consensus seems to be that you’ll pick it up again, soon enough, if you’re forced to do it – but no-one wants to. What strange times.
