Bruce Silverberg

Architect, educator, and sometime journalist Bruce Silverberg lives in San Luis Obispo, California, where he is on the full-time faculty of CuestArc, the architecture program at Cuesta College.
Bruce learned touch-typing on a manual Royal FP typewriter, a model featuring that company's famous "magic margins," when he was in the ninth grade at a public school near Philadelphia. "Typing was a required course for all students on the college-preparatory track back then," Silverberg says. "They also taught me to write, in the hope that I might someday have something to say with my newly acquired skill!"
Bruce lives in San Luis Obispo and his contribution is the first from the Central Coast:

"There was a time when words mattered, when the effort expended to get something onto a page made writing less casual. Those were the days!"

If this contribution has piqued your interest, feel free to build on it: Post your own version of the story's continuation here in comments, on Twitter, on Flickr, or text us at (805) 628-2283. You can also wait for the May 15th SLO event and type it all on a real live typewriter.
