Om Malik :

Similarly, I like the tactile feeling of writing with a fountain pen on paper. The soft scratch of the nib, drenched in a Churchillian purple ink, sliding over highest quality Japanese paper, makes even the most mundane notes joyful. It has been said that writing on paper helps us remember better, and at this stage of my life, I can use all the help I can get. It is a real shame more people don’t use fountain pens — it can be such an antidote to constantly peering into our screen and thumbing our way to the carpal tunnel syndrome.
