Growing up in the 70’s I took a “typing” class in high school that was filled with a mix of manual, yes manual, typewriters and newfangled electrics. Granted, I grew up in Podunk, North Dakota and my school was quite small, but it still seems odd to be able to say I learned to type on a manual typewriter.
I feel somewhat like the figure stepping out of the book; however, I have always tried to stay up with new technology, So yes, even though my roots are embedded in the primal book I do embrace new technology, but not all in the digital world is about technology; Joseph Esposito states “The processed book is about content not technology. . .”
