I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again: I love electronic signing.

I’m the son of a doctor and one thing I inherited from him, if not my science acumen, was the horrendous nature of my handwriting. I really wish I had nice flowing script like my wife, but after a few words laziness gets to me and my writing ends up looking like chicken scratch. There is also the slightly annoying fact that I have never signed something the same way twice — my signature is not only an illegible scrawl, but also an ever changing one.

Then there is, of course, the hassle of printing out documents, signing them and then scanning them for on-sending — all a pain that offends my slightly obsessive-compulsive need for simplicity.
