Donald Jackson walks the reader very clearly through the evolution of writing and promotes the good notion that using a keyboard while offering a benefit for reading clarity, may not be the best choice to express your individualism and to feed your senses. Obviously pounding or tapping away on standardized keys and then printing on a distant printer (in black and white for the most part) is a whole different experience than using space with hand directly on paper -- but I hadn't thought about this before until after reading this excellent book.
