Tools for writing
I spent most of today writing, and by that I don't mean 'writing' which is usually shorthand for something worthy and academic. I mean I did a diagram in Powerpoint, loads of emails, a table in Word, made some appointments on my Palm using the stylus and, later on, some notes (with a biro). I've just been annotating some student work (onscreen) and then I looked for more stuff on 'tools for writing' - an ongoing interest - and realised that 300 hundred years ago, maybe less, it was all so complicated, so special, so different.
