We use ad-blockers as well, you know. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. our upcoming SmashingConf London, dedicated to all things web performance.
François is the hidden twin brother of Wikipedia: he knows everything about everything, or at least he knows just enough to convince his teammates that he does. A question about Schrödinger’s cat? He has the answer. But at Prototypo he is in charge of shipping a lot of very cool features. Since he got his software engineering degree at INSA, he has been involved in many research projects in France and Japan. Ohayō François!
Words are the primary component of content for the web. However, until a short while ago, all we had at our disposal were but a few system fonts. Adding to that, those system typefaces weren’t necessarily coherent from operating system to operating system (OS).
