Forget The iPad, Give Me A Nice Pen & Paper

If one thing is certain about technology, it’s that future generations will look back and laugh at how our “hot technologies” were prehistoric and silly. That probably includes the iPad and iPhone, which most consider to have revolutionized human-computer interaction via touch screens.

However, I predict another certainty: that amidst constant innovation in human-computer interaction, the value of written communication — old fashioned pen and paper — will only go up. The tactile, personal and handmade nature of a handwritten letter will become a  more valuable tool as most of our communications digitize. That’s why I stress handwriting with my own kids.

But not everyone agrees, so we debated this hot topic on the Cast of Dads:
