First dispatch from the front.


  1. This is probably one of the very best things to come out of the typosphere in a long time, right up there with My. Adney's classroom project. You guys are shaping (or warping?) young minds.

  2. Very nice! It is great to know there are some more, especially younger, people getting to use typewriters. Maybe there will be a new appreciation of them and we will see more and more used.

    What I like more than when students do not know anything about typewriters is when adults, some being IT people, engineers, and others not knowing anything about how to use a typewirter.

    I sometimes have one or more at work and usually get a "How does that thing work?" often.

  3. Love it.

    I've had more than one student light up in amazement at the simple mechanical fact that the carriage return lever BOTH pushes the carriage back AND turns the platen. Take that, iPad!

  4. It looks like I'm going to get a lot of entertainment from this, and it's so nice that they are being used again. I hope expansion is in the future.

  5. Keep us up-to-date on the status of Strike Force. It sounds like a wonderful chance to get some typewriter love into the hands of students. If they have a blog or a page, let us know!


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
