From Poor Typist to Type Pal
Gregory Short got his start with typewriters when he taught himself to "chicken peck" after not being able to take typing class in school. Many years later, he created a blog and YouTube channel called Poor Typist. The pandemic took him on an unexpected journey, from forming an online meeting for typewriter lovers to developing the internet's only pen pal database for typewriter users. Here he provides an overview of Type Pals.
