New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I just ran across maxkerning.com. The site introduces you to an over-the-top character who is obsessed with good typography.
In his faux manifesto he states: "...technology conveys thoughts more cleanly and rationally than our imperfect mortal abilities."
With a footnote that reads:
"I admire the effort of men who hand kerned type, but when I look at
their work, I see fragments of sloppiness everywhere."
After this odd experience, I did a whois search of the domain maxkerning.com to find it belongs to Extensis.
I'm thinking maybe they have some sort of new kerning technology? Anyone have more info? Insight?
