Contribute to an NPR story on old tech

NPR's Marketplace Tech Report is running a reader poll/story series on "Technology you refuse to give up." Let's chime in!

Tried to, but they don't care about the opinion of us south of the Río Bravo. :P

Done, though I also mentioned my film cameras.

I already filled out the form. I did not have time to load a typewriter font or contact all the fine people I have met who have greatly helped me with the hobby.

I too mentioned fountain pens, cameras and tube AF and RF equipment. I thought it a bit much though to I include Grammophones, Victrolas and Crystal Sets.

Oh, and I forgot wind-up pocket watches.

@Miguel, email them directly.

I've done my duty.

Done, with much thought and introspection. It's not just about typewriters for many of us, is it? I'm sitting in a library, wearing an analog watch, jotting notes with a fountain pen, and replying to a survey presented by a radio network.

It makes me want to load up my 35mm camera with black & white film, jump on my 1972 motorcycle, and explore Old Route 66 between here and St Louis.

Done also. Thanks for the link. And I am with MTCoalhopper. I keep a daily journal with a selection of fountain pens and inks, use a film camera from time to time, maintain a l974 Triumph TR6 as a daily driver, play vinyl with vintage audio gear (including my pair of AR3s, purchased in the late 60's), and keep our family's mid-1800's tall clock wound and keeping time. I do these things not as a revolutionary, but because it feels good - they all just make me happy.
