EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
There are about a million different options out there for posting stuff that is longer than 280 characters. If people can’t be bothered to put their thoughts into some sort of structured, coherent format because that is too much work, or because it involves too much “friction,” then I am not going to bother to read what they have to say. It is a sign of disrespect for the reader.
That is older than most of the stuff that played on the oldies station when it came out in 1986.
After reading a bunch of reviews and watching some videos, I settled on this Kuru Toga 0.5mm pencil from Uni:
It arrived late last week, and I have been writing with it for the past few days. I have to say, it’s pretty great.
I will admit that, prior to using the pencil, I was a bit skeptical of the feature that slowly rotates the lead as you use it so as continuously provide a sharp point to write with. Having used it a bunch now, though, I really appreciate this mechanism.
The easy response is to say these are just words, but the words we use to describe our world our what structure our experience of that world. The words we use are important.
If you walk around casually talking about crushing things that don’t actually need to be crushed, I’d say that’s going to affect your view of the world and how you live in it, and not for the better.
