Thanks for pointing out this article, Richard!

A fascinating concept, touring the country with a typewriter, encouraging people to share their thoughts.

I can see it now: Typospherians going forth into the hinterlands, regaling the townspeople with their clickety-clack song like troubadours of the written word.

It is great fun to be a (tiny) part of her journey. The daily updates are great and I really do like the idea-turned-real of biking around with a typewriter. Sort of busking but with user-generated content.
