German government bans laptops – gets typewriters

by | 28th, September 2012

THE state parliament of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, is looking to ban lap-tops from meetings.

So. Pirate Party workers Patrick Breyer and Torge Schmidt took a typewriter along. Breyer notes:

The other groups want to buy at the expense of the highly indebted country tablet computers for all Members, as existing laptops should be banned and a “uniform appearance” is to be created.

You can’t play patience on a typewriter. It’ll never catch on.
