An interesting article of relevence to Baron’s

I recently stumbled upon this article about how chimpanzees living in the West African savannah have been observed making pencil-like tools and using them in written communication. I found this of particular interest after reading the Baron article about writing “technologies” and how even something as simple as the pencil was once considered a huge advancements, even for humans.

Here is the link to the full article if you want to read and draw your own connections: http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/004230.html

    This was a fascinating article! I want to see more about the research.

    Also, your linking of this makes me think about “reading in slow motion”…. if we didn’t have a full palate of stuff to read and do for the rest of the semester, we might be able to devote more time to this. Would that be a good thing?
