Does Drawing Have a Future?

Just as voice-recognition and "informational shorthand" systems (text messaging, gestural typing, etc.) have radically reshaped the technical relationship between thinking and writing, "real time" machinic processes and simulations have now completely restructured the representational space of architectural reasoning, which historically had been monopolized by orthographic drawing. If orthography has lost its hold, what has it been replaced by? What are the consequences of this replacement for practice and pedagogy? What will become of drawing? And what will become of architecture's relationship to its own history?
