Little known fact: One of my early inspirations for Daddy Types was the IBM Selectric II typewriter--aka the typewriter with balls--which ushered in a workplace revolution. With the IBM and the word processors and computers that followed, typing was no longer considered just women's work.
Nowadays, a generation later, the idea of a man not being able or willing to use a keyboard--or of him handing a pile of notes to a female colleague and asking her to type it up for him--is ridiculous.
From the outset, I wanted daddytypes.com to contribute to a similar revolution in the way we, I, society looks at parenting. And besides, design-wise, no one seemed [seems, even two years later, really] to be giving too much love to the Selectric's aesthetic, typefaces and document layout innovations, which were direct precursors to the MS Word word processing conventions that are so ubiquitous now. Courier,
Arial, Letter Gothic, Univers, and more were all fonts created for the Selectric.
Anyway, that's all just a self-imporant precursor to saying that while I'm stoked and amused that workfriendly.net will reformat web sites to look like Microsoft Word documents, I'm more interested to find something that makes them look like the monthly sales summary from the Ohio office, circa 1975.
