There was a lot of interest in my post Michael Mann the ‘reluctant public figure’ and ‘typewriter expert’ where he made the easily debunked claim about the QWERTY keyboard being the very first. Since then, spies, lubricated by “big oil” have managed to get a photo purported to be of Dr. Mann’s keyboard, and one look will explain much. Apparently, this keyboard is standard issue to any alarmist.
This also explains the division of time related to the co-founder of Greenpeace troll incident:
@wattsupwiththat Mann seems to split his time thusly…
1) Complain about abuse, etc, in the media/journals.
2) Abuse, name call on twitter
