The Low-Tech Experiment

by Renard Moreau

 

When was the last time that you composed a post in an old-fashioned manner?

I found out that up to this day, there are those who write their articles on a paper-notepad (The kind that they used while they were in school), with a pen or a pencil.

For the sake of experimentation, I decided to do this post in a similar manner; I didn’t use a notepad, but I wrote my words down on a blank sheet of photocopying-paper (It felt odd, but I enjoyed looking at my handwriting); the last time that I did that was when I misplaced my smartphone.

I think that the cumbersome aspect of it all is: transferring what you have written on paper by typing its content on the computer or smartphone.

One thing I know for sure is: I have no intentions of repeating this experiment anytime soon!
