I don't usually write, but I spend time reading articles on-line a lot. I consider this is no "output". I think search engines or any other internet products make us think less these day. For example, on Google, they provide type ahead suggestions for you so you don't need to type in the whole sentence or words they already figure out for you. On top of that, they provide auto correction if I misspell anything, it will get fixed as well. On the other hand, whenever I type on a plain text editor, I need to make sure what I'm going to say and be sure that I don't mistyped anything. This process requires me to think it through first then type it out in text next. To some extent, I found this help me think better.
I don't think I have a lot of practice on writing and thinking ever since I graduate from college. This is not healthy. Now, maybe it's time to exercise it again. It is like exercising your muscles, the more you do it, the better you get for you body. Writing should be the same, it helps you exercise your brain. I like this site, maybe it help me exercise me head better in a long run.
Congrats Basile Samel.
