IBM Wheelwriter 1000 - $25
« on: Thu, 12 October 2017, 15:39:56 »
Nice Wheelwriter keyboard. $25 / best offer + free shipping. Worth it just for the one piece keys.

You can either buy clothes or buy keyboards, it's that simple. No one who is not very rich can do both. Pay no attention to your clothes and no attention at all to the mode, and buy your clothes for comfort and durability, and you will have the clothes money to buy keyboards.

Maybe it is just my imagination, but those typewriter keys feel better than keyboard keys.

And, if lot-lizard ever revives his project, I suspect that a lot of people will be wanting "Code" keys.
Fake news and disinformation are just a few of the symptoms of whatís wrong. The problem is something far more fundamental. The problem is these vastly powerful algorithmic engines are blackboxes. And, at the business end of the operation, each individual user only sees what each individual user sees. The great lie of social media has been to claim it shows us the world. And the follow-on deception: That their technology products bring us closer together. In truth, social media is not a telescopic lens ó as the telephone actually was ó but an opinion-fracturing prism that shatters social cohesion by replacing a shared public sphere and its dynamically overlapping discourse with a wall of increasingly concentrated filter bubbles. Social media is not connective tissue but engineered segmentation that treats each pair of human eyeballs as a discrete unit to be plucked out and separated off from its fellows. Itís a trypophobicís nightmare. Or the panopticon in reverse ó each user bricked into an individual cell thatís surveilled from the platform controllerís tinted glass tower. Little wonder that lies spread and inflate so quickly via systems that are not only hyper-accelerating the rate at which information can travel but deliberately pickling people inside a stew of their own prejudices. - Natasha Lomas 2018

You can also get this working with an Xwhatsit Model F controller as it has a 16x8 matrix :)

What's the deal with these? Look neat enough but do they have a special switch?
