Kids Collide with Typewriters

Here’s an interesting episode on Kids Devour Technology — where a group of open minded kids get some time with some “ancient typing machines.”  Halfway through, ha— “I love this and I want to keep it, actually…” says one. The  unseen narrator tries to paint typewriter use as a primitive privation, though… of course, it’s a TV kids’ “educational show,” so let’s no be too hard on them. Any typewriter exposure is generally a Good Thing.

Another Analog Event–PUBLETTERS

While plotting and planning the next Type-IN, have cooked up an even humbler, less techno event–still set in a pub, since a person can get thirsty. It’s called PUBLETTERS.

Visit www.publetters.com for the sketchy details, and if you’re near Philadelphia, please come

by DOOBIES BAR on a Tuesday in July. BTW — if you can’t make it, but you’d like us to write

you a letter, send your mailing address  to phillytyper@gmail.com. Thanks!
