The Typewriter Topic

Here in Europe everybody talks about a big blackout happening soon.

Although I don’t think that the lights will go out for a longer period of time, I thought it would not be a mistake to have a backup plan for my law business.

So I bought a used mechanical Typewriter (there are no new ones out there, prodcution has stopped a long time ago it seems). A “Brother” made in Japan in the early 1970ies.

Anyway, I am fascinated by this machine and went down the typewriter rabbit hole: You can find a lot of resources online (youtube, reddit, wikis) and I enjoy writing on it.

Typewriters are a nice rabbit hole, especially for those of us who remember when the IBM Selectric was new.

Have you heard of / seen the movie The Typewriter?
