If you can’t remember the last time you jotted down a hand-written note, you are not alone. For a study suggests that the days of using pen and paper may be numbered – with a typical adult not having written anything for almost six weeks. In a world where we increasingly tap out our thoughts, messages and reminders on a keyboard or a touchscreen phone, the traditional note or letter appears to be becoming redundant. The research, commissioned by online stationer Docmail, revealed that the average time since an adult last wrote by hand was 41 days. But it also found that one in three of us has not had cause to write anything ‘properly’ for more than six months. (via Could we forget how to WRITE?
