Birth of a Typewriter Nerd...I blame Olympia.

While using the Olympia, I was reminded of how deliberate the act of writing on a typewriter is compared to a computer. This is something that has been oft-quoted by some writers who still prefer a typewriter over a word processor. On a typewriter, you get one chance to get it right, just like film photography.
And then there's the sound of the typewriter itself.

Which I guess is why I also like mechanical wristwatches too. It's all springs and cogs and wheels all compressed into less than a 40mm diameter.
Modern technology is great. It's all practical and time-saving.
But it's also a little bit cold.
Just my take.
