I’m still thinking about where people think and how different tools influence the type of thinking you get. BTW, here’s a shot of my desk from this morning. My latest experiment is writing to people (by hand!!!) asking the question: “where and when do you do your best thinking?”
It will be interesting to see whether the form of the communication (email, handwritten letter, blog post etc) influences the answers in any way.
I have been talking about the rise of analogue technology (fountain pens, wet film photography, vinyl records etc) as a counter-trend to digital technology for some time and I even acquired a fountain pen and some personal stationary recently.
Of course this all seemed like a really good idea until I started to physically write anything. My hand almost fell off after the first five letters. It seems my body has physically adapted to typing on a keyboard rather than scribbling with a pen.
If anyone would like to post a comment to the question above please do so…or you could always send me a handwritten note of course!
