Stenoknight's Steno Stash

an array of 13 steno machines arranged on a purple quilt

Preparatory to my presentation at the kid's class on Friday, I decided to try to dig up all the steno machines I had in my possession. I know this picture is missing at least three, because I don't want to risk waking the kid up extracting their Javelined Uni from the bedroom, and my trusty wooden-backed StenoMod bag is AWOL, which is unsettling, since it tends to be my go-to backup machine. I also couldn't find the pieces of my late lamented Georgi. There might be still others tucked away in the messy recesses of my home office. But I'm pretty happy with this array nonetheless! Not sure I'll take all of them to the classroom, but it was fun going back down memory lane while excavating these beauties. How far machine steno has come in a little over 100 years! I can't wait to see what the future brings.
