Have you ever used a typewriter?

I have! I've also replicated the focussed simplicity by using the iWriter app, which gives you just a white screen with no distractions.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Probably Damien Day from Channel 4 sitcom Drop the Dead Donkey, even if he is everything an ethical journalist shouldn't be...

What's your favorite social network?
