Subject:   Computer use eroding Chinese handwriting

This piece describes how people in China are forgetting how to write Chinese characters because of word processors. It talks about how the pen replacing the calligraphy brush at the turn of the century raised similar concerns. It also explores the relationship between reading and writing. Altogether, I found this to be one of the more interesting articles I've read in a while.
