Written communication has become, in today's world, a highly technical business. We compose our manuscripts using word processors, and we send and receive our post, in the main, via e-mail or text message. We write our diaries as blogs, and we check off the goods on our shopping lists with the click of a mouse, tossing them into virtual shopping trolleys. Love letters are corresponded via instant message, internet chatroom, Facebook and MySpace. What we seem to have lost in our modern technological babel is the ductus: the physical and material `act of handwriting'.
