Lucky in 2013.

It’s the last day of 2013. I’ve thought a lot this year about how lucky I am: I get to work on freedom full-time, among other places at OTS [1], OpenITP [2], QCO [3], and the OSI [4].

I don’t want anything different for 2014, except for more people to be so lucky.

Free Clarendon!

Speaking of freedom…

The U.S. National Parks sign above uses the Clarendon [6] typeface — a high-quality digital incarnation of which is now on the way to being freed thanks to the Free Clarendon campaign on IndieGoGo [7], started by Linus Drumbler. If the campaign makes its goal of $30,000 Canadian, Clarendon Text will be released under the OSI-approved Apache License 2.0 [8]. While by font geek standards I’m no font geek, I love Clarendon, both aesthetically and for its association with effective government programs, and have contributed to the campaign to Free Clarendon. I hope you will too.
