I was reading the comments about the USB Typewriter when I came across this:
The Hemingwrite is a minimalist digital typewriter for
distraction free writing composition. It combines the simplicity of
a typewriter with modern technology like an electronic paper screen
and cloud backups to create the best possible writing experience.
It is designed to do one thing only but do it exceptionally well.
Since there is no email, Facebook, browser, or menus, you are able
to stay in your creative groove and finally get your writing done!
Hemingwrite - Set your thoughts free
My first thought was,
my god is that hideous looking.
My second thought was,
it's a larger TRS-80 Model 100 with a smaller screen,
how is that even possible?
My third thought was,
people really need to be forced not to check GoogleMyFacePlusSpaceBook while they write?
and they're willing to pay for the limitations,
I don't know.
I can see the appeal of not being distracted while writing,
I'm more distracted by the ugliness of the design,
and the small screen just doesn't appeal to me.
But really, how hard is it to just disable the network?
Or even take a pair of scissors to the Ethernet cable?
use a pen?

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
