Heather and I would like to present our website on the typewriter, called “From Handwriting to Typewriting.” Please feel free to provide feedback on our work.
Here is the introduction to our website:
The change from handwriting to typing is still a work in progress. There are advocates and detractors on both sides of the debate but there seems to be a slow move towards typing. As authors of this website, we don’t purport to give all sides of the argument, instead we have narrowed our topic to that point when typing entered our collective consciousness. The typewriter has revolutionized the business world and has major educational implications. But the rise of the typewriter and subsequent screen technologies have not yet overtaken handwriting completely. Time will tell if QWERTY becomes our main mode of textual communication but in the meantime, look how far we’ve come in our typing history.
