Different Strokes at NYC’s 5th Annual Type-Off

Sorry Rick Ross, but in the late 1930s and the '40s, one way to move weight meant tapping keys on a typewriter. See how these mechanical wonders are being used today in the annual NYC Type-Off.

This is the nerd alert of all nerd alerts—a type off. Two people are sitting head-to-head, one at a pink typewriter; one at a black typewriter. Both are competing for speed and accuracy. The payoff? Cash prize. This is not a joke; this happened on a Saturday night in Chinatown/LES.

Pierre Greene and Elizabeth Suman, the originators of the 5th Annual Type-Off™ put me and the finest fingers in the city to the test at Klughaus Gallery. Anyone could enter; no prior experience required. According to their Facebook page, “The Type-Off is NOT just for hipsters; it is for every kind of person and all ages. It is not ironic or made up for attention; it is just for people who like to type, drink and have a good time.” Next time your Human Resources department wants to build camaraderie in the workplace, try hipping them to the Type-Off™.
