I don’t have the luxury of writing notes by hand anymore — the time it would take to digitize the volumes of notebooks I’d produce would just be overwhelming. So, I’ve switched to typing in lectures, sacrificing quality for the Command-F function.
There’s still something so beautiful about reading someone else’s handwriting though.
May I ask you to understand that I did not read the contract before doing so. I only did it for your legal dept’s benefit.
