Writing`s different

Something that struck me the other day, (no, not physically!), was the fact that at school we were (are?) all taught to write the twenty six letters in our alphabet in the same way.
I can remember writing row after row of each letter, copied from the blackboard, as did everyone else in the class, until we got them right, and the same.
So why is our writing all different from each other? Some people`s so neat and precise, others looking as if a spider has crawled across the page, some very legible, others like a secret code! Is it the pace of life some of us live at, having to scribble things down quickly, whilst others have time to form their letters properly?
Is handwriting becoming a dying art, with the use of computers?
