Remarkably, we still live in an age where in some parts of the world, typewriters are necessary. In Myanmar, typists have seen demand for their trade decline, but many still thrive. A report from Fox News relates: “Aung Myint says his work is steady enough, but a far cry from the days of military rule, when he spent most of his time typing up authors’ novels for submission to the now-defunct censorship board. He rarely broke for lunch back then, often working by candlelight well after shops were shuttered and businessmen had long gone home.”
