Modern machines for writing
 / 

Was about to email this to Tim, but then thought I should probably just post it instead! Check out this great old film on “Modern Business Machines for Writing, Duplicating, Recording, Etc.” There’s a lot packed in, and it’s pretty fast-paced; worth dragging the scrubber around a bit even if you don’t want to sit straight through.

Don’t miss the court reporter’s shorthand machine! Totally ridiculous, and yet, there’s a premonition of our lives today, all SMS shorthand and walking around staring down at weird devices…
