Linotype University: teaching the ancient art of Linotype linecasting. In the old days, before electronic typesetting, the Linotype machine was a successful step at moving away from hand-setting each letter for the printing press. There's a couple of the big machines at the Rollag WMSTR, and I always stop to watch and maybe get one with my name printed (they also give away free ones with the show title on them). Now, there's this place -- for FREE if you're accepted -- to learn how to operate a Linotype machine! I may have to look into it further, even though my qualifications and ability to actually attend are limited.
