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:

Here's an example of rethinking 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
