Luddites united --
A new family history group has been formed to combat the increasing
use of technology in the hobby. Led by the self-styled
arch-technophobe, William Gates, the body aims to remove what he calls
the "contagion of computers" and return to the days when everything
was handwritten. "We're not sure that ballpoint pens or pencils
count. Our ancestors wrote with quills; that should be good enough
for us." Deputy chairman of the group, Dr. Steven Jobs, has also
called for the compulsory use of Latin and secretary hand in note
taking. The inaugural meeting of the society will take place at 12
noon on 1 April.
