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!
