Cybernetic Synergism

Cybernetic Synergism

Post-Script: I take no credit for this; I don’t know what came over me!

I’ve decided to take the Canon Typestar, for no other reason than I haven’t yet done a road trip with thermal typewriter. I hope the Skyriter and Rocket aren’t too upset.

Nice work.
Did you take a roll of teletype paper on your trip?

Bill, I took the pack of letter-sized thermal paper I recently received. I’ll have to do a review video about it. Though it’s lighter in weight than the thermal fax paper roll, it seems less sensitive to marks induced by pressure and scratches. Nice paper.

Ted: Exactly! I want to do an essay-style video about this. It’s not mere hyperbole or fiction, but there’s something very real about the interaction between man and machine - at least, typing machines, less so with electronic gizmos like smart phones (speaking from my own experience). Modern electronics are very convenient but don’t induce this far-flung creativity like our beloved typewriters.

Agreed. I have to confess my writing output in human language happens mostly on the analog typed page. Computers get typed on in their own languages.

When I was a kid, I would go through each new Sears and Wards catalog, page by page, looking for something new. I always remember, they had special ribbons for "noiseless" typewriters, which had much heavier ink. I always wanted to try one. Phil - Phoenix
