Leo, a similar prediction is often made about arithmetic since the invention of the calculator.
in one of Isaac Asimov writings they discover a man who is actually able to perform an operation like 368 x 4821 with something called a pencil and paper.
My writng teacher said if I had a problem with typing than I can write it instead.
Today, typing may be a more important skill than writing. I certainly type much more than I write everyday. The only thing I hand-wrote today was my signature at the grocery store.

I noticed some time ago that I can't write a decent piece of text reasonable fast anymore (it becomes unreadable). So, we can already see the effects of almost exclusively using the keyboard to write text.
