I’m sorry, but I’m afraid that I must insist that we each start using a signature, or an email address that is easily visible in the header.

Someone wrote the paragraphs below. The email was TO NewtonTalk—FROM NewtonTalk. Hmpf. There is no signature at the end.

So who wrote it? Anyone?

How are we supposed to engage in meaningful (or otherwise) discourse when we don’t know who we are, uh, discoursing with?

It might have fun 20 or even 10 years ago to try and figure out who it was. Now, frankly, it’s just annoying.

The paper is treated to make the FriXion ink more easily ”erasable”—one version by heating in a microwave (since heat from any source makes the ink turn transparent, so cold will ”bring it back"), and another, thicker version coated to be cleanable by a wet cloth. The apps simply take a photo and you program the iOS or Android app to send the photos to one of several cloud-storage services. The apps know which service to use by scanning one of those square code-blocks (forgot the name) printed on each page. You can even buy the code-blocks as stickers to use on any paper or even a white-board. Their service does not do OCR. They do sell pre-printed pages in several formats like calendars.
