Great article by Benjamin Mullin on Seattle Times’ columnist Monica Guzman’s experiment to see just how much “writing” she does when she endeavored to hand write everything over a two-day period.

Mullin writes: “She hand wrote everything. Tweets. Texts. Emails. Everything was scrawled on a piece of paper and photographed on her cellphone. Guzman wrote about 130 handwritten notes over two days, a feat that cramped her hands and reminded her of the convenience of typing.”

News & Tech readers may remember Mullin from our May/June 2014 issue in which we covered the evolving rules of newspaper internships. He writes for Poynter.org as one of its first Google Journalism Fellows. Mullin was previously editor-in-chief of his college newspaper, The Orion, and has held a number of internships at publications throughout Northern California as well as freelancing for USA Today.

Great story, Ben!
