Typewriter Day 2012

Typewriter Day: June 23, 2012
Thought I forgot, didn't you?*

Typewriter Day 2012 is this Saturday. Last year we had a trans-global virtual type-in with video and noise and suitable amounts of goggling at some members' superior finger-speed.

This appears to be the year of the occupier, so how about something a little more insurrectionist (within the bounds of civility, that is)? What would be a suitable radical activity/celebration for the 'sphere this year?

What do you say, Typosphere?

 * To be totally honest, I might have come this close to forgetting.

Ugh! Coincides with Field Day. Oh, well I may need to take a typewriter to the club. May not get much use though.

WooHoo! I am hosting a type-in in Madison, WI that day. I will be sure to have the Manifesto available on handouts.

"Type on a train"! Man, I only WISH there were a cool train ride to take around here. Riding a train and typing at the same time - that would be the ideal travel experience in my opinion.

Type on a train you say.... hmmm.

I won't be on a Train on Saturday, but I might have to do something similar. Let me think....

I'll meet you at Grand Central. We'll take the 3:40pm to New Haven, Connecticut. How's your schedule for June 23rd, 1946 look? I'll be wearing a grey San Juan Stetson and carrying a Royal Quiet De Luxe. I'll await your telegram at my local Western Union office.

Well, it's good that someone else remembered. I thought I was going to have to do something extreme, like updating my blog, to make note of the day. Missed it, shamefully, last year.

As a matter of fact, I _had_ been wanting to take a weekend rail excursion, recently. This may be something into which I should look.

I've got a wallet full of mini-Manifesto's, so I'd be up for some motivation to drop a few.

The day did kind of sneak up on me, so I'm glad you posted this!

I'm celebrating it this whole week! The 23rd I will have to do something on the Swissa.

@Ledeaux - Whre in Madison? I just may be up that way! I live in Illinois but my wife is always looking for a reason to go back to WI (she went to college in MKE).

Happy Typewriter Day! Love to find people who celebrate typewriters.
