DevChatt


I had the chance to talk to a group of developers at DevChatt 11. I spoke on webfonts. The talk was recorded, so hopefully I can put the audio up soon. The presentation is available here:
I am very happy about my move to Chattanooga (in addition to moving here to be with my wife). There are some tremendous things happening, and a very strong entrepreneurial spirit abounds. After attending DevChatt, I was inspired to brush off a few business ideas and I hope to develop these further. One is related to my core competency, typography, while the other is in a totally different field. I was also inspired by listening to Ale Paul and Luc De Groot in New York City this past week.
