Even more interesting commentary on the article:
As I took pen to note paper this morning to thank our panelists, and flexed ever more seldom used hand muscles, I though about how students master the art of communicating well through the written word.

I am in love with the ease with which I can read others' thoughts in the New York Times online and the flow of writing that is shared every nano-second. Even a short dip into the stream is rewarding. Thought-provoking writing lives and is more accessible than ever!
