Do you think the literacy rate is tied to the type of script that has evolved? Are some scripts (alphabets) easier to learn than others? I find your posts interesting and informative.

Good Morning from the heart of the Great State of Texas Master Denning. How wonderful that you were able to take this exhibition in! How much irony in the fact that in our current written forum of communication (mostly via Internet), you are now writing in a mode of both communication AND transport of that vehicle, which now exceeds most of Mr DeVincis’ far thinking notes! Cheers to a most productive day. I remain a fan of all written words, Koni Billings.

Yes I suppose to some extent that was the point of the exhibition. It showed how writing has evolved from chipping away at stones or clay to the electronic world. I still love physical books etc but one has to recognise that the internet and electronic communication allows a greater reach.

I am sure some scripts are much easier than others. Many oriental scripts are very complex with symbols originally for most words rather than just sounds.
