|What are Type-Ins?||Currently planned Type-Ins:|
This image from Smith-Corona advertising during the 1960's is probably the earliest reference to the idea of the Type-In, the practice of gathering together with our typewriters and celebrating our machines and what we create with them. The New York Times records that Mike McGettigan's First Philadelphia Type-In on Dec 18, 2010 was the beginning of modern Type-Ins. Since that time, there have been Type-Ins held in several states of the Union and in countries all over the globe.
If you'd like to know even more about the history of the modern Type-In and how you can hold one yourself, consult Phillytyper's advice here.
The term "Type-Out" was coined by Tom at Cambridge Typewriter in MA to refer to the practice of having a Type-In outside in the sunshine. The first such Type-Out was held in front of Cambridge Typewriter on Oct 22, 2011.
