Salon article: Time for a typewriter renaissance?

Great coverage. Nice to see some familiar names. I met Jesse Banuelos at Berkeley Typewriter last year. Glad to hear business is still good.

The writer of this article is the nice young lady who interviewed me a few months back! It's always nice to see my name in print! haha

Seriously though, I love the coverage of the typosphere. We need it - and we need to make sure that those silly hipsters don't take away all the fun that goes with collecting these great machines!

Congrats to the 'sphere members for the blog traffic bump! The story just got picked up on Boing Boing as well. Everyone mind your manners and get your feet off the furniture -- we got company!
