What's the name of the great vampire squid, you ask?

Goldman Suchs, no relation to the behemoth in the banking industry.

BolloxReader: padraig: NotARocketScientist: Because what this world needs to save it from all it's troubles, is a new font.

/can't tell most of them apart.
//It's like being tone deaf but in print.

Netflix create its own font to stop paying royalties for using Gotham.

On a financial point of view, it makes sense.

Releasing it for public use with a "we can alter this license whenever we want" is downright predatory. I mean really evil. Im expecting that in two years they will update it to "$1000 per web page" paid license, effective five business days after public notice is printed in the New York Times, perhaps as a crossword puzzle hint.


The correct font for text referring to Goldman Sachs is *always* gonna be Comic Sans...
