My Kinda People

Interesting blogs:

Strikethru -- typewriters, old cameras, typewriters, fountain pens, typewriters.... Kewellll! Current top entry? Crystal-clear typewriters, popular with jailers, as it's harder to hide a shiv in 'em. Ooooooo.

Ditto Pencilthings Info, connected to, it is true, a labor-of-love commercial site but itself more like chatting with the clerk on items of mutal interest.

...And a flat-out product (albeit with a clever blog, linked via "Home") for those who were let down when I mentioned grid-ruled steno-type books and then it seemed the product had been discontinued: a next-best thing at a lower price than the cool Rhodia (though their 8.5" square, spiral-bound grid pads are mighty cool, too): Field Notes, plain, simple 3.5" x 5.5" gridded notebooks just like Dad used to lose!
