There are currently twelve master penmen in the entire world.

Jake Weidmann is the youngest.

Note: Excellent video but poor product placement. I also do not agree with this statement made.

"If you don't teach your child handwriting, the thoughts that they develop when they wish to communicate through a computer will vanish as soon as they have touched the keyboard."

    This is an art that i think is still alive and well in different forms. Jake is correct the act of writing with a pen helps your memory as well. At our office (Bottle Rocket Studios) we seek to do a lo-fi to hi-fi approach to design and we find it helps our UX team think more about the journey they are trying to take their user on. In this process we have found some team members with some real hand skills but nothing like Jake.
