Periodic Table of Typefaces | Pi Studio Printing

"This poster is printed on an amazing sticky-back fabric called Photo Tex which when removed from the wall leaves no residue. It can be peeled off and repositioned hundreds of times. It’s perfect for dorm rooms and class rooms. It sticks to almost all flat surfaces such as glass, metal, and walls.

The Periodic Table of Typefaces was designed by Camdon Wilde of Squid Spot in the style of the over-sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in schools and homes around the world. This particular table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today."

For BIL, Tagging Along With TED Proves to Be an Excellent Adventure - WSJ.com

BIL sort of formed out of a desire to shadow TED," says Eric Gradman, a roboticist who spoke at the first BIL, in 2008. For example, Mr. Gradman says, "TED often defaults to, 'How can we use neuroscience to help the sick?' and BIL says, 'How can we use those same technologies to make humans even more awesome?'

I'll be at the BIL conference this weekend. If you're around, come by and say hi!
