quote: It's more of a concern that people are literally forgetting how to write, or just never learning to do so. You can say, but they're learning to type on a computer or compose text on a tablet.

Guess what, all that fancy tech becomes worthless paperweight material without electricity.

Everything is more connected into computers than ever before and if you can't use, fix, and modify electronic components then you will be at a severe disadvantage. Traditional things are being replaced by their modern part. Books to E-books, metal to polymer, cable TV is now internet TV that you can watch nearly anywhere. I have thousands of books on my hard drive and I'll never read them all in my life time, that same amount of paper means many dead trees, more space than a house, and a fire hazard, why all of that when I can put them all and MORE on an out dated thumb drive?
