Sending email via typewriter, sort of

Martin A. Rice Jr., an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, does not like the "mushy" keys on computer keyboards. Here's how he sends email:
Mr. Rice explains all this over a rotary telephone from the 1970s. Later he bangs out a follow-up message on his 1938 Underwood Champion portable typewriter. Mr. Rice will often write a letter on his typewriter, scan it into his computer, and then send the image as an e-mail attachment. "Some people are tickled by it," he says. "Some people are absolutely annoyed."
