Handwriting vs. Typing
#21
RE: Handwriting vs. Typing
What your pen says about you ... I was expecting them to talk about cartridge / fountain pens but apparently they don't exist. I used to have a collection that I'd bring around with me, each with different coloured ink. But as I found less need to ever put ink to paper they kept drying up before I got to use them again.

They can be expensive, but you can also buy them dirt cheap. Although the cheaper ones tend to have very thin and hard nibs which are unpleasant to use. It's also far more environmentally friendly than throwing away an entire pen each time.

My physics lecture starts tomorrow, and I'll mostly eschew computer presentations and just write on the black/whiteboard. It provides a certain pace, and opportunity for me and the students to think about the material that is just lacking when presenting prepared slides.
Typing it into the computer in real time and projecting it might be possible with a good graphics program, but seems cumbersome and less flexible.

My aerodynamics professor used the only lecture room left at the Naval Academy with a sliding black chalkboard. One where there were multiple boards on sliders stacked on top of each other.

I remember the lecture where he derived the Navier-Stokes equations from ΣF=Σma on four boards, with zero notes. Did it from memory.

Our test was to reproduce that.

Dr. Karpouzian. I remember that Armenian man like he is sitting next to me. Gave me nightmares. Reading his ratemyprofessor is pure nostalgic comedy, though.

I mean, basically, if I started writing with a pen I'm not going to suddenly magically become more creative.

I see no benefits to handwriting... besides personal letters and notes. They're nice in handwriting.

Yeah, there's a causation/correlation difficulty thing going on here. I don't even know that that many writers do so by hand, myself. It may even stifle my creativity in my own writing, simply because putting ink on paper is a little more permanent than typing into a processor, and that means for me that I pause and think more -- when in fact, such pauses are often the enemy of creativity.

I like handwriting my stuff for my own reasons, but one of them is not that it makes me a better writer.

Excellent! Now where do I get a proper waistcoat?

I'll try to aspire to that level of legendaryness then. I do have sliding boards, but the room I was assigned unfortunately only features whiteboards, which is not only less oldschool than blackboards, but also less flexible as far as graphics are concerned.
I won't have to do anything as complicated as material derivatives yet. Just basics for now.

I type everything mainly because my handwriting looks like an epileptic spider crawled out of the ink pot! (no need for cryptography though, no one could decipher it)

I much prefer typing for this reason.

My handwriting is reasonably neat for a lefty, but I find my hand aches anyway after a long session of writing. Don't get that with typing.

Is it weird that this happens to me even though I write with my right hand?
