Remington Noiseless 7

P.S. I found out from Richard's site that the plastic keytops are original, not after-market "updates".

Oh, Emerson. How far had your star fallen if you were having to resort to giving away pianos so that people would try your typewriters? Such a shame.

Digital Oubliette

The Camera
As much as the above typecast is critical of digital media, I must confess excitement over a new piece of technology that allows me to easily create digital media. Most of our classrooms have documents cameras. These pieces of 21st century technology allow a book, page, or document's contents to be displayed on an overhead projector. The document cameras we have use a regular video camera at a very low resolution. They are nice, but the low resolution makes using them difficult. Newer versions use digital cameras to increase the resolution and improve image captures in low-light situations. The new one I recieved is a digital one. The most useful part is that I can use it as a scanner. The above typecast was digitized using the HoverCam. It really is a neat piece of technology. It also has a futuristic look about it.

A Final-ish Draft

A Rough Draft

Have you ever been to Typewrunner? Go there after you look at this rough draft of a poster based on the photo from his site. Mike Clemens issued a challenge that I could not ignore.

Rough draft.
