Will handwriting soon be history? Or will we always prefer a handwritten love letter from our beloved? About 6000 years ago humans started writing and its effects have been enormous. It alters the brain, allows us to transfer information (in large numbers), and has a huge social, cultural, psychological and political impact. Today, writing words by hand is just wwway toooo ssslow for our times, and our minds. Keyboarding has taken over. A shame? Turn your personal handwriting into a font! And never forget: handwriting is a technology as well.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
