To be fair they're mostly focusing on milestones of the films, hence the 50th anniversary hype. Fleming's birthday is an exception.

To be fair, Fleming visited during filming of Dr. No, From Russia With Love and Goldfinger. There have been plenty of opportunities prior to today for the 007 Twitter feed to acknowledge the author. Also, without Fleming, there are no James Bond movies and no jobs related to James Bond movies, including jobs for people to write Tweets for the 007 official Twitter feed.

Quite right.

Far too often the popular view of Bond is that it is purely something to do with Sean Connery and Daniel Craig. And perhaps, begrudgingly, Roger Moore.

Their roles, and those of others, are but a sparrows tears compared with the great Mr Fleming, and that should never be forgotten, though too often it appears it is.

This is interesting, though:

Quote :
On this day in Bond history, 1908, Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond was born in London. We are keen to track down the owner of the typewriter that Ian Fleming used when writing many of the original James Bond adventures. Fleming bought the gold-plated Royal Quiet Deluxe Portable typewriter from a New York dealer in 1952. It appears in many of the photographs showing Fleming working at his GoldenEye home in Jamaica. The 1947 model typewriter was bought at auction in 1995 by an anonymous bidder and to this day its whereabouts remain unknown.

We would love to talk to the owners of this momentous piece of Bond history. So, Bond fans, do you know who owns the machine? Are you the mysterious buyer? If so, please get in touch.

I bought Ian Fleming's typewriter but I threw it away when I couldn't figure out how to access Facebook or porn on it.

I think they're talking about Ian Flaming, the set hairdresser.
