Variable Fonts meeting at TypeCon

Posting this several weeks after it happened, now that the cat is out of the bag. This was a meeting that took place during TypeCon to discuss the variable fonts announcement at ATypI and other related subjects. It took place at the Seattle Central Library with representatives present from Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, FontLab, Dalton Maag, Tiro Typeworks, Morisawa, and SinoType (with many other organizations involved that weren’t in the room that day).
