My new blog: Hot Lead

I just put up the first post of my new blog: Hot Lead. The first one is a little light and breezy, but I plan to get into a lot more detail about what we're doing with the Google Font API, open source fonts, performance, rendering, font technology, and more. Please subscribe and wait for updates.

We had a great launch, and I'm still recovering a bit from all the excitement - and definitely looking forward to relaxing a bit this holiday wekeend. Again, thanks to everyone here at Typophile for supporting the effort in many different ways.

Raph, best of luck with the blog, but what's with the revisionist history, or perhaps a bit too much champagne during the post launch research?

>The first web fonts actually shipped in December 1994 (Netscape 4.0 shipped with support for the proprietary PFR format).

>Internet Explorer has had support for its own flavor of web fonts since IE6,

IE 4 first supported EOT (not IE6), and Netscape wasn't even called Netscape until late 1994, Netscape 4 shipped a few years later than that (June 97 according to Wikipedia). There was no FONT tag until 1995 and IE.

"light and breezy" indeed :-)

Cheers, Si

@si Oof, sorry about that, it's fixed now. I indeed wasn't as careful with the research as I should have been.
