    t be pushed around Meanwhile in Finland things are moving apace Starting in 2016 Finnish students will no longer have to learn cursive or calligraphy but will instead be taught typing skills There s the usual pushback from the cursive partisans with predictions of declining motor skills and the like but the country as a whole seems to be on board with replacing cursive with a more relevant skill That s good news from my point of view but of course not everyone agrees I continue to believe that resisting the demise of cursive makes as much sense as King Canute s trying to hold back the tide and that it is merely a matter of time until it dies a deserved death The events in Finland are another step in that direction This entry was posted in General Bookmark the permalink Lisp for the Web Animated Paredit Guide Wolfgang Mederle Not sure I agree on this one after I ve seen our sysadmin being unable to write a few simple letters on a flipchart with a pen I think there s a lot that can be purged from the school curriculum in favor of modern research techniques and the like but I wouldn t put this skill on top of the purge list Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible Research Matters Links Useful Emacs Commands Archives April 2016 March 2016 February
