Friday roundup

Post Comment

Here’s an eclectic assortment of pen, paper, and creativity-related pieces to chew over on a hot summer weekend…

  • What’s left for print? David Carr describes a train ride north: “I was having a moment, one without informational angst or FOMO (fear of missing out). And when I finished something, I spent time staring out the window at the unspeakably pretty Hudson River.”
  • Is the pen dead? Not around these parts, certainly, though Nick Bilton seems to think so: “For me, the pen has finally lost its usefulness to the finger and the touch screens it controls.”
  • Feeling uncreative? Take a vacation: “That’s the claim of a new study, in which Dutch researchers gave creativity tests to workers before and after they took a trip and found they scored better afterward.”
