Ode to a keyboard and what typing is owed

Seth Godin on how we are moving from keyboards to touch screens and from typing to swiping:

Many people are quietly giving away one of the most powerful tools ever created—the ability to craft and spread revolutionary ideas. Coding, writing, persuading, calculating—they still matter. Yes, of course the media that’s being created on the spot, the live, the intuitive, this matters. But that doesn’t mean we don’t desperately need people like you to dig in and type.

His full piece doesn’t add a giant amount more to this one point – but his blog adds much to everything. Hugely recommended. Even before he said what I didn’t realise I think about keyboards.
