Although bullshit is common in everyday life and has attracted attention from philosophers, its reception (critical or ingenuous) has not, to our knowledge, been subject to empirical investigation. Here we focus on pseudo-profound bullshit, which consists of seemingly impressive assertions that ...

Time flies like an arrow. Yesterday (or 10 years ago) thanks to Hans Hagen and many others we managed to make Hermann Zapf meet Don Knuth at EuroTeX 2005 in Pont-à-Mousson. Great moment.  Hermann Zapf helped a lot Don Knuth with TeX and MetaFont. They worked closely at this time (circa 1980) and they hadn't met since then.
 
A wonderful obituary for #HermannZapf in the New York Times.
Mr. Zapf found expression in subtly inventive typefaces that have brought words to readers on paper, on signposts, on monuments and on computer screens for more than half a century.
