I ran across a really interesting site. It is a wiki called Obsolete Skills and lists 12 skills that used to be necessary but are no longer, according to Robert Scoble. I imagine you can add more if you wish.
The ones there now include:
  • dialing a rotary phone
  • using a slide rule
  • refilling a fountain pen
I'm not too sure all are really obsolete (some people still use fountain pens), but they are certainly less needed. There's also a link to new skills, too.

Very interesting.
