Raph Levien is a longtime contributor to the libre graphics community (libart, Ghostscript, Advogato) and launched Spiro at LGM 2007 in Montreal. Now working for Google, he is leading an initiative to sponsor libre font projects and services. This talk by Dave Crossland, a sponsored type designer, will outline the sponsorship opportunity for type designers wishing to design fonts that can be shared and collaboratively improved. It will also offer one of the first public demonstrations of a related Google font project.
