It’s really too bad kids aren’t better typists, on the whole. I remember, when I was in kindergarten or first grade, bemoaning the fact to a classmate that I had all kinds of great ideas, but writing them down was hard.
Now, due in no small part to my Internet addicition, the whole mechanical aspect of getting words on paper (or on the screen) is easy. The creative part is harder.
Maybe when I have a kid, I will hire a scribe to follow him/her around and capture all the great ideas so he/she won’t be burdened by mechanical challenges.
