The passage has really broaden my horizons on the history of writing. One thing I really found interesting was the fact, Tiro, had to learn multiple forms of manuscript. The forms of writing he used were separate for business, inscription, legal documents, and so forth. Comparing this to today’s form of communication for the professional world, we primarily focus on professional style emails as opposed to hand written documents.
Also, after the reading the passage it was interesting to see how many people relied on others for the help of handwriting. Today we do not have to do much of that because of auto-correct on phones and laptops. The history behind writing in the older days was cool to read about as these people worked hard to perfect their talents.
