It is unlikely that these texts will be able to provide a complete understanding of why we enjoy testing pens in stationery shops, drawing while we are on the phone, the belief in folklore, the need to misuse technology or whose idea it was to fly aero­planes in formation to write messages across our skies. Instead over time the submitted material shall hopefully provide references to things old, new and maybe forgotten which together can offer an alternative understanding of our habit to document thoughts and ideas.
