(Follow-up to Fontastic).

Canada’s public broadcaster, the CBC, has two programmes that deal with technology and culture and law and politics in a particularly useful way. The first is Search Engine (welcomed with joy here; website here) and the second one is Spark (website here). I’ve been meaning to blog about Spark for some time, as recent themes (such as online health information, Scrabulous and online TV each could have inspired a blog entry. Oh well. Anyway, the final straw in the guilt-trip for not blogging about this lovely show is the episode all about writing and fonts. Including a great game exploring the common ground shared by the names of fonts, coffees and babies!
