People just beginning to show up.

Waiting for the typing contest to begin.

  5. Added to http://type-in.org !
    I've consolidated all of the Boston area type-outs to a section grouped with the rest of the serial type-ins that happen at specific cities. Let me know if I've missed any links to blog or news reports about the Type-Outs, and I'll add them. (:

  8. To Everyone: Thanks for all your generous comments. Words and pictures do not fully convey how much fun these typewriter parties are. You should really check it out if one comes to your area.

    Ted- Thank you so much for organizing the Type-Ins the way you have. My Type-Outs listed are perfect. I hope you know how much we all appreciate the work and effort you put into this and for making the Typosphere the go-to spot for Typewriter information.

  11. Oh shucks, I was going to bring my all upper-case, Friden Flexowriter to your next type-out, until I noticed it is for manual typewriters only. (Just kidding, I live in Phoenix and I don't think any airline would accept one as checked baggage.)
