It's been quite the day. We've all been burning the candle at all ends to get this launch out. And despite a significant number of both cosmetic and functional bugs, we felt it more important to launch when we said we would.
Behind the scenes, we were shooting for a 12:00 noon PST launch. We didn't want to launch too late in the day, when it no longer really "felt" like 05/05/05. As it turns out, we needed the extra time as we were plagued were a swarm of latecomer bugs that had us frantically working until about the 5:00 hour. Sometime in the late afternoon, Yves Peters popped on and pointed out that the Typographica boards were blowing up with people asking about the launch.
me thinks that all typographic work will grind to a halt on 6-5-05
Wow. Typophile has been live for over an hour, and there aren't any blog posts yet? This cannot be; Typophiles don't strike me as a group that would shy away from new features! I have a hunch that the personal Typophile blogs (someone is going to have to create a cool acronym or cool name for these things) might turn out to be the best new feature on this site.
