TypewriterThe summer before I started to study journalism at university, I spent hours in the basement of my parent’s house learning how to type on a manual typewriter. To graduate, you had to type so many words a minute so the pressure was on to get proficient as soon as possible.

It seems like a long time ago but even more so now that Godrej and Boyce has announced it will stop making typewriters. The Indian-based company is apparently the last typewriter manufacturer in the world.

When the typewriter does disappear, it will likely be a technology that few people will miss or be nostalgic about. It must be like how people felt when the car replaced the horse and buggy. In a few years, people will look at typewriters in museums as strange and antiquated equipment.
