Writing is a form of magic that connects our brains and hands in a way that typing cannot equal. When we type, at least part of our brain is unconsciously distracted by the mechanics of the action. „Wheres the backspace key?” „How do I get an umlaut?” „How do I magnify the page view?” Using the combination of hardware and software disrupts the flow of thoughts in a way that a pencil doesnt. It may need sharpened once in a while, but we can rotate it to obtain the best point without giving it a thought.
Ein liebenswertes Plädoyer für den Bleistift: „Why the pencil?”.
