Typewriters. Typecasts. Olivetti Style.
Thank you. Great post!
That is a pretty cool* workspace. But I like that the Typosphere is everywhere and nowhere simultaneously. It's like we are a secret society that isn't so secret. Our headquarters can be at a thrift shop or a coffeehouse or someones blog. Regardless, facial hair abounds in the Fueled Collective.*Use the hipster ironic definition of cool
I've always thought that TSHQ was wherever two or more typospherians met, and it could be anywhere from a pub to a Starbucks... much to the annoyance of the latter's regulars. But I digress. Nice place, indeed! So there are already 20 startups there? The place must be teeming and buzzing with creativity and energy! Me likes!
@Ryan, this is all in the spirit of fun. If I were a rich man, I'd offer this as an HQ for the Typosphere, a place where we can strategize the insurgency, talk and trade typewriters, meet up for local and international type-ins, or just hang out. Of course, that doesn't mean we won't meet in thrift shops, coffeehouses, and the like. Both-and. I'll put up an Olivetti room, for sure. @Miguel, precisely, this would be one of the available spaces where two or three can meet. Wouldn't it be nice to have an HQ you can hang around in when you visit? The Fueled Collective is my dream office!@Luis, thanks.
Why don't we all get to work where there's an endless supply of coffee AND lemonade? :)
A great location ... if they will accept typists and the lovely clickety clack of the typewriter!
WANT.Seriously, I think you're right, there ought to be places for typists to congregate and hang out, places where everyone is welcome but ESPECIALLY typewriter lovers.WordPlay is the closest thing we have to such a place here in Cincinnati ... at least for the under-18 set.
Looks like a great place.
That sign on the wall that says; "Criminalize Decaf", says it all. Nifty place. Thanks, Ton!
@Dana, @Bill, my thoughts exactly.@JL, we'll have a sound proof room called Studio 44. ( :@Richard, it starts with a dream but who knows, we may yet find such a place. You're right, we're looking for a grown-up WordPlay.@teeritz, yeah, I love that sign! It's exactly what I say when Decaf is all that's left in my real workplace.
We have a place like this in Tacoma, but not as bustling as this one. Oh, and in Ham Radio we say, "Drinking decaf coffee is like kissing your sister."
Awesome! This looks like a place where you can find something new every day. I would love to walk around sometimes, but I don't think I can actually work in such a space. I would get distracted by all the things I can discover around me.
@Spiderwez, I thought about that too but that's a challenge I'd rather face than having a boring, uninspiring office.
If there is no inbetween option, I would also choose the Fueled Collective. Definately!
Looks like you could have great place to work from with your Olivetti Lettera 22! .
