TDF EP 138 – Michael Everson

Michael Everson is a language dork! He’s a linguist, script encoder, typesetter and font designer. He codes rare and wonderful languages so that rare and wonderful people can write to each other on the computer. Cherokee, Hmong, Esperanto. I learn stuff. Tune the hell in.
