Trivia: Pencil and Paper

Q. What is the term Pencil and Paper?

A. An archaic information storage and transmission medium device that works by depositing smears of graphite on bleached wood pulp.

More recent developments in paper-based technology include improved “write-once” update devices which use tiny rolling heads similar to mouse balls to deposit colored pigment.

All these devices require an operator skilled at so-called “handwriting” technique.
