Chalk all the Way

A cartoon shows a balding technician fixing a robotic lecturer which has seized up because of dust, there is also a cup of coffee, a blue-screened beige computer, a full waste paper basket and a Dilbert cartoon on the wall.

A drawing I did after having noticed how all lecturers always seemed to use chalk, never a white board or smart board type system in lectures, the cartoon contains quite a few things I've hinted won't change even in the distant future when robots replace lecturers or try to...

[UPDATE] I have now seen one lecturer use a whiteboard, but only because we were in the department conference room for an extra revision lecture, this is one of only two rooms on campus that I can think of with a white board, and the only one I can think of that doesn't also have a chalkboard.
