M01 documentary


(JP) #1

I’d watch it, maybe put it on netflix, or kickstarter for some funds for editing work. Because you don’t have enough to do already…

history of typewriters
qwerty
computing
ergodox
kinesis
maltron
esrille
layouts - dvorak, colemak, workman, norman
inception of M01, interests, kick starter, USA tour, etc.
feature set, layers, programmable, etc.

I’d watch it as well as pay for it.

As a matter of fact I’d help make it if others could help in the production as well.

I’m a hobby filmmaker in the Bay Area (http://www.wineglassproductions.com) and would love to do this.

Especially since I’m a keyboard geek that’s used a Maltron and Happy Hacker previously.

Anyone up for a collaboration on this?

The best line… I’d help fund too + buy powdered flavor for my ice cubes, but only if Jesse’s selling.

For the record, Marcin Wichary is writing a book about keyboards. It will be a very, very interesting book (his twitter is also worth following if you are on there), and it covers a lot of history in written form.

A documentary, based on the book, and Keyboardio… I’d back that too.

(Just in case this meme has a similar effect it had some two years ago… crosses fingers)
