    Font Constructor constructs fonts
    Wednesday, December 19, 2007
    Opps, nearly forgot to mention Font Constructor. It is aimed at students, apparently.

    FontMatrix for... Linux!
    Tuesday, December 18, 2007
    For the more geeky of you, the ones who know sudo, or who don't get scared by FontForge, you might like to know about FontMatrix, it's font management for the Linux world. One step closer to an opensource design solution. There is even a little review of sorts at, which I'm sure you all visit regularly...

    Urban Typography Workshop
    Tuesday, December 18, 2007
    The bumf says, "A two-day course centered on experimenting and iteratively fine-tuning urban designs with Fablab. Use materials such as frames and stencil sheets in combination with light and mirrors in order to create spatial constructs." Hmmm, Spatial constructs, you say? Isn't that another way of saying anything at all? Lights and mirrors, but no smoke? Most peculiar. Read a bit further in however, and it does sound jolly interesting, so if you're in travelling distance to Amsterdam in mid January, and you've got 150€ spare, it might be a fun couple of days.

    Lyrical intent
    Monday, December 17, 2007
    It does exactly what it says on the tin: "The P22 Music Text Composition Generator allows any text to be converted into a musical composition. This composition is displayed in musical notation and simultaneously generated as a midi file." Hmmm, I wonder what'd happen if you could use it in reverse?
    Thanks to Yves

    It's all about kinetic typography and buzzwords...

    Not my words, theirs. Just do it, but, you know, for computers, consultancy, outsourcing and that. I am particularly impressed with the way they've managed to make this work across wildly different formats. Swish!

    For those of you living under a rock (like me, it seems), you may like to know that Yves has posted another corker over at his blog, this time on the subject of Meta Serif.
