You would not think an hour of talk on fonts could be made so interesting, but yes it is.
Some beautiful font designs, especially the Japanese characters. Computer font design was not something I had really considered, but it plays a crucial and unsung part in your whole Human to computer interface experience and so on your productivity and enjoyment.
Bill said something like current monitors do not yet have a high enough resolution for great font rendering. Current monitors (e.g. my laptop 1280*768) are a roughly similar resolution to the new High definition (HD) TV resolutions, so are we eventually going
to see mega high resolution TV/monitors s one day ? 6000 pixels width and above ? How high a resolution do you need to go to before an extra DPI becomes redundant for the human eye?
I once saw a green CRT display with terrible fonts, how things change.
Bill Hill should have his own documentary series. More Bill Hill please.
