Designer life before AutoCAD

I moved law firms once to a small firm. On the first day they gave me a dictaphone and suggested I record myself talking through documents or my comments to same and have an assistant write them up.

On another occasion, we discussed this same thing and I suggested it wastes more time due to how fast I can type. One of the older partners said I would think so, but he also types fast and learned it was still faster to go through a dictaphone (his version of fast is sub 40 wpm).

I went back to big law life with actual technology shortly after. I type too fast and don’t have the brain/experience to talk through a document without seeing it to ever make something like that feasible.
