[WATCH] Meet the New York Times Machinists Who Keep the Printing Presses Running

In this fantastic mini-profile from our friends at Motherboard, meet the three veteran machinists who have kept the New York Times Printing Plant operational for the past several decades.

As the world’s largest technology manufacturers increasingly move toward creating products that are designed to be difficult or impossible to repair, Motherboard has started looking toward the margins of tech to find the people keeping older machines alive and running. In the first episode of State of Repair, we visited the New York Times printing plant to meet Greg Zerafa, Jerry Greaney, and Chris Bedetto, who are part of a dying breed of machinists that keeps the newspaper's eight three-story printing presses humming and spitting out hundreds of thousands of newspapers every single day.
