Font Squirrel

Monday, April 27th, 2009

I probably would have found this site ages ago if Google-ing for “free fonts” actually brought up sites with free fonts instead of bait-and-switch poser sites. But thanks to a recent post on Ajaxian, I know have an excellent source for open source fonts to use in whatever project I want: Font Squirrel!  I can embed it with sIFR or canvas-text, I can give them to everyone in my Thursday night typography circle, and I can create header images until the cows come home.  No more looking over my shoulder wondering if that assassin from the all-powerful font maker lobby has finally tracked me down.  (I think I lost him in Munich.)

Viva la open source!

I’m an iPhone Developer!

It’s official! Apple took my $99 and I made another $130 selling an ssd at this link, and now I can afford to write applications and submit them to the iTunes App Store! I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Time to start reading up on PhoneGap again. Appropiately, I am writing this post from my iPhone.
