QWERTY keyboard 145th Anniversary, July 1, 2019

The QWERTY keyboard 145th Anniversary, is today, July 1, 2019.

In writing this blog post, I am recalling one of the best pieces of advice my Dad ever gave me was to “take up typing” when I was in high school. Fast forward, and I believe keyboarding is the more current term.

While writing on Type-Writer.org, “Celebrating the writing machine” website in June, I came across his article, “Long live QWERTY!”  My thanks to Mark Adams  

“What is astonishing about the QWERTY keyboard (CNET is hailing July 1 as QWERTY’s 142nd anniversary)

Invention of the QWERTY Keyboard … On July 1, 1874…”

Here’s to a great month of July ahead!
