Tech Guy with Typewriter

Hmmm; this latest Phillymag story profiles the founders of Technically Philly; That’s Chris Wink, with a classic manual (Remington?) typewriter, on the left! (And Brian James Kirk with a Mac laptop on the right)   Will try to find out what the story is here and let you all know.

UPDATE: Often, typewriters are used as symbolic props, brought to the shoot by stylists. Not this one. The vintage, compact Underwood in the picture was gifted to Mr. Wink years ago by his grandfather, who has since died. He typed, simply,”Hello Christopher” to his grandson; that page is still in the machine, which now graces the newsroom of Technically Philly’s HQ. Our thanks for Chris for the lovely story behind the picture.

A parcel has… raised my concerns

Typewriter Insurgency

“There is a box, with a bird’s head sticking out of it,” came the message from the guys at Trophy Bikes.  I’m the owner and the box stops with me.  When I saw the note tucked inside, I couldn’t ignore the situation: the Typewriter Insurgency had found me; it was time to get clacking. 2 B Continued….
