I'm typically not one for mainstream news, but I found this video to be pretty interesting. Contrary to the title, it's not all down and bashing handwriting in the modern age, but rather it is pretty upbeat on the purpose of handwriting today. It has some interesting historical facts about handwriting too, stuff about Spencerian and Palmer methods of writing. Very interesting.....enjoy!
