Optics, Font-Tech, and Responsiveness

This talk by Erik van Blokland left a lasting impression and still gets me thinking two days after I watched it.

Beyond Tellerrand was a web design/dev conference held in May in Düsseldorf. While probably only a tiny fraction of the attendees were able to comprehend anything of what EvB talked about, I regard it a must-see for everyone involved in type these days.
