"Analog Renaissance"

Typewriters get top billing in this New York Magazine story about the "analog renaissance" and "analog underground."

This article doesn't annoy the crap out of you?
"There are only a few repairmen who still know how to oil a machine, replace a tired ribbon, or realign tangled keys."

Gee, I wonder how I replace my ribbons without a qualified repairman!

And 950 dollars for an Olivetti Valentine!!!!!!!!!?????? Down with this analog renaissance.

That was certainly a grumpy comment.

It is a little simplistic, implying that you need to haul down to a repair shop the moment your typebars clash. You're allowed the rage-face, Ryan.
