Oops! I guess it didn't help that I was introducing myself
as either Christopher M. or David H. depending on which of
the nasty rumors I was starting. Heh. I hope you guys don't
mind that. ;^) Gary doesn't have an excuse though, since
we had met before.
In all seriousness though, it was great to see many of you
who I haven't seen or spoken with since TypeCon '98 or ATypI
'99 in Boston. I also met so many wonderful people and made
some new friends too! Just goes to show what a truly open
community the type field is/can be and how intimate this con'
really is. I hope it becomes more successful, so long as it
can retain that spirit of camaraderie. Thank you David and
Stephen for sharing your experiences of TypeCon '01.
David, at the bar that night, we were talking with Kelly and
Susan (I think her name was) about the "Women in Type" panel.
Also, a minor correction regarding the "Typography in Con-
temporary Print" panel: Ray Cruz joined at Allan's request
just prior its start. Simon Fairweather (sp?) spoke up early
in the discussion stating that he's a Type Director, at which
point Nick, Frank, and Allan pulled him up there participate
and Nick took a seat in the audience. Simon, BTW, seemed com-
pletely comfortable up there. He's knowledgeable and articu-
late with a good sense of humor to boot. I do hope he will
participate in future type events. At least that's the way I
remember it going down from my perspective up on the stage.
But I was nervous - that was my first time on stage. I kept
thinking of what Mark Batty once said: "If you go to these
things long enough you end up speaking at them". He may have
been quoting someone else though, I don't quite recall.
