Pen pal

NYT story of the week?

Another challenge is that Livescribe is being introduced into a world where young people are spending more time typing text messages on cellphone keypads and writing less in longhand.

Paul Saffo, a longtime technology forecaster who teaches at Stanford’s School of Engineering, said, “Ironically, the big behavior change may be to get this younger generation to pick up this unfamiliar instrument called the pen.”

(On the nomen/omen front, I like that the inventor of this computerrific pen is named "Marggraff"—the "graph" being "marg"-inalized??)
