Saturday Scribbulus

Scribbulus Saturday

I wish I knew how to use shorthand. Of course there are variations of the skill, speed writing and so on, nevertheless it is one of those things that seems to many to be thought redundant. If you can record it on an iPhone that later transcribes the thing for you, leaving only the task of trawling through its strange substitutions, then why bother?

Because like film over digital it has magic and personality, and because with this increasing rarity it feels like learning a secret language, because we all complain about constricted time, despite all the gadgets designed to streamline our existences; shorthand might be just the thing to get all those thoughts buzzing around your head down before the next pod cast rudely interrupts them.
