And what better way to highlight this than to toss a Type-IN for the opening Arcade Party at Philly Tech Week. On Friday, 29 April, in Dilworth Park, on the West Side of City Hall, see our analog printing presses nestled among the digitalia. Starts around 5 p.m., Speed Typing Challenge sign up around 7 p.m., goes till 10 p.m.

Tap, Tap, Tappin’ on Heaven’s Door

From today’s NYT: Bob Dylan typing in a room above the Cafe Espresso in Woodstock NY. PHOTO: Douglas Gilbert. Typewriters figured heavily in Dylan’s work; songs had to be typed out for copyright filings, Bob’s notes showed he often refined even “final” typed copies. What machine is BD using here, I wonder?
