Rock, paper, scissors

Rock, paper, scissors isn’t just a children’s game. It’s also the history of writing.

First we wrote with chisels on stone.

Then we wrote with ink on paper.

Now we write with hyperlinks — cutting our pages apart and joining all the pieces with blue underlined words.

  2. Very true, but the blue underlined words are also changing to twitter links and rss feeds – even in this genre the times change so quick!

  3. How neat

  4. I can’t wait to see what spock and lizard will be.

  5. Too funny and so true!
