    Well, I have to say I could not agree more. I tried Facebook on my daughter’s urge as a means to keep an eye on the grandkids. Suddenly I was spiraling down a rabbit hole with no end in sight. I eventually deleted my account and have moved away from social media… for the most part. I come here to read and participate with like minded machineaholics. I like taking my time to write (create) something that requires a little thought. I also like the fact that my meanderings are permanent. When the light go out my writings will live on in a file cabinet in the back room.

    As you noted, the replies here are generally thought out and written with heart and not a pile of animated emoji nonsense. Too bad we can’t upload and attach a typed reply to the notes here. That would be cool.

    As a side note, I do keep my Twitter account. I don’t go there often, but, as a rule, my Tweets are scanned typed commentary. I suppose that makes them typospherical.

      Scanned type for Twitter? That’s great. There’s some form of resistance to that. I left popular social media for a host of reasons, but I do miss old friends and I think such social media can create awareness on important issues. If I were a small business owner, I would have to use it. Zuckerberg soured the whole thing for me, and I don’t think he is an exception. What a world.

  3. It’s always good to read your posts. Even if the subject isn’t always on my radar, I appreciate reading something other than slogans, soundbites, or reused bumper sticker schmaltz, and actually enjoy thinking about what you say while digging the typeface. Also, cheers again to Van Cleave for his repair tips.

      Thanks, Ivan. Glad there’s something to chew on. Is your blog in the Mighty Blog Roll on Richard’s site? Forgive me if I forget.

    I’ve been a bit lax on my posting to the Typosphere. I have to finish painting my house.
    The nice thing about the typosphere is the people on it and the writing and posts have substance and good information. Substance is something social media does not have, and I doubt can give. Way to easy to get lost in the worm hole as there is no viable search for past articles and such, at least from what I’ve found the very few times I used my wife’s FB.
    Problem with the Rainforest started back in the 1970 when the Brazilian government did nothing from stopping the farmers from burning gigantic swaths of it; now all that lack of restraint has come back to haunt the world.

      Agreed. The slowness and effort that comes with the typosphere enables empathy rather than shallow exchanges. Popular social media reminds me of the driving down here. Everyone is honking their horns and cutting one another off. It’s reactionary and no one has control over their emotions.
