Four Pillars: The Final Fontier?

Signs that another proprietary bastion is about to crumble. DejaVu is making inroads as an opensource font family, and adoption is on the uptake. Thanks to Stephen Shankland for the story.

I think this is an important development. It does not matter whether DejaVu “wins” or not, after all it is the community that decides.

What is important is that a cornerstone of the writable web, the “live” web, has begun, finally, to pass out of proprietary hands. And such genies are very hard to push back into the bottle.

I can’t wait to see how Steve Jobs and Apple respond to this, given Steve’s professed passion for calligraphy and fonts.
