    This piece describes how people in China are forgetting how to write
    Chinese characters because of word processors. It talks about how the pen
    replacing the calligraphy brush at the turn of the century raised similar
    concerns. It also explores the relationship between reading and writing.
    Altogether, I found this to be one of the more interesting articles I've
    read in a while.
