Writing is becoming a lost art. This can be largely accredited to technology’s growing influence. Emails and text messaging have brought about a new and shrinking vocabulary consisting of phrases like “lol, snds gr8! ttyl.” For most people this is the only writing they do. Meanwhile the engineers and other technical people who develop technology largely despise writing and avoid it at all costs. If we don’t act now to reverse this trend we will, as a generation, miss out on utilizing the most durable and powerful medium of communication.
