 No TeX Hour tomorrow: Next is Basics on Thu 3 Feb (6:30 to 7:30pm UK time) Jonathan Fine <[log in to unmask]> Wed, 26 Jan 2022 19:19:50 +0000 text/plain (1275 bytes) , text/html (2062 bytes) Hi For personal reasons there won't be a TeX Hour tomorrow. The next TeX Hour will be on Thursday 3 February. The topic will be Basics, by which I mean the fundamental concepts and technologies relating to TeX, Typography, Written Language and Communication. However, the next TeX Hour will be focussed on 2022 basics, not the basics of 1978 (nearly 50 years ago). The basics are the forces that enable and shape for success typesetting as a tool used for communication. Meetings are Thursday 6:30 to 7:30pm UK(=GMT) time. UK time now: https://time.is/UK. The URL is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/78551255396?pwd=cHdJN0pTTXRlRCtSd1lCTHpuWmNIUT09 Here's an example of rethinking Typography. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typography*: *Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable and appealing when displayed. Me, today: Modern Typography for the Blind is the art and technique of audible, tactile and interaction conventions that make written language legible, readable and appealing when rendered for a blind person. In other words, Typography and User EXperience (UX) are roughly equal partners. And "page" is a word that means both web page and printed page. And MathJax is for many their first experience of TeX. wishing you Happy TeXing Jonathan
