I hope we can look forward to input using a pen of some kind. It is
now within the state of the art for multiple users to each see the
same screen, and edit it using a pen, with each seeing what the
others are doing. This offers to replace the blackboard and the
lecture hall, but will not do so until the cost and ease of use
becomes comparable.
