  1. 80% Science, 20% Art

    Web typography is a toddler in the big bad world of competing displays, browsers and operating systems. Jon takes it by the hand, and discusses the science that comes before the art.

    It’ll be a celebration with lots of opportunity for questions and discourse. From exploring how fonts are rendered, to a quick refresher on typesetting and with a little history thrown in for good measure, it’s time to get your glyph on!

  3. The Pipeline 10: Gina Trapani

    Dan Benjamin interviews Gina Trapani. Gina is an author, blogger, programmer. We discuss the story and inspiration that lead to the creation Lifehacker (and the “persona” behind it), making the transition from code to writing, the daily grind, deadlines, and posting quotas, Smarterware, Think Tank, her self-publishing experiment, consistency and building traffic, and the importance of having a launchpad.
