dot-matrix printer driver

Can a μC be used to drive a dot-matrix printer?

I thought that it would be so geeky to do something with my circa 1980 dot-matrix printer. I was wondering how any current technology would talk to it -- so I thought that it would be cool to make a driver.
I *think* that a PIC could do it.

Enjoy this project?

I have no idea if this is practical. First, what kind of system would use it? Second, what technology would that system have to output data -- I2C?

I've never done a project close to this. So,  if anyone has any input, please share!
