I have been asked by a few people in email why I don't have a fonts or typography category.
I have actually been resistant to that, since although the area frankly fascinates the hell out of me, my lack of expertise on some of the important basics about the non-programming aspects about typography has given me pause.
I know I can't really compare with actual typoraphy experts, and I did not want to seem disrespectful.
The tack I take with the analagous situation regarding linguistics (i.e. making fun of my own delusions of linguistic aptitude) seemed inappropriate since I have no delusions about having any kind of typographical expertise. I have none, and Barney Rubble would be able to produce higher quality OpenType fonts than I....
Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Is such a category one that would be sensible and/or useful for the random posts that do touch upon fonts?
