March 15, 1979.
That's the "Ides of March" for those who love your ancient Roman history. Another one of the small reasons why I am so crazy. Beware.
The International Day of Protest, of course - June 18.
Specifically, 1968. Hours after Cassandre took his life.
twin snakes here: june 5, 1977
Mmm... mine is June 18th as well.
International Day of Protest makes a lot of sense to (for) me.
One more gemini listing: May 31st, 1965.
I couldn't be more typographically irrelevant, but: Sept 12, 1978
I obviously win the Geezer prize so far :-)
Geminis make life worth living. Especially the ones who are Monkeys in the Chinese horoscope... ;-)
Tiff, do you want to re-collect dates that are already on the calendar? I am assuming that you are just building off the current collection.
I would also like to volunteer to help maintain the calendar, should the need arise.
yes, Grant, I think we'll just add to the current calendar. there are some mistakes/errors/problems on it and I've told Jared about our willingness to help. if anyone has subscribed the typophile calendar and notices errors please point those out too.
Yours truly 10/02/53

It's very possible I might be the youngest on here: 8/31/84
me: January 16, 1980
which is "National Nothing Day"
This un-event was created by newspaperman Harold Pullman Coffin and was first observed in 1973. The goal of National Nothing Day is "to provide Americans with one national day when they can just sit without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything."
I feel special!!
Sept. 25... Libras rule!
We have the same birthday! Well, give or take a few decades. I really like the "National Nothing Day" thing--now I feel special too.
I have to agree with Shu, Pisces Rule!!!!
I'd be willing to bet that Eric Gill and Giambattista Bodoni would also agree with us.
"It’s very possible I might be the youngest on here: 8/31/84"
Gah. I wear running shoes and have operational computers older than some of you kids...

me : may 26, 1980
Running shoes? You got Running shoes? I've got sneakers (as in U.S. Keds high-tops with a rubber circle on the ankle bone). I've got stuff in my refrigerater older than you :-)
FWIW, mine is November 13 (as in Friday the), 1970.
Ine! :-) I'm not surprised, considering your two-faced font...
Running shoes are Canadian. Sneakers are US o' A.
All of my "running shoes" (including the 25-year old ones) are Converse Chuck Taylor's.
Keds can only dream of being Chucks when they grow up.
As for your refrigerator, my condolences.
"Keds can only dream of being Chucks when they grow up"
Sorry Grant, only the rich kids got Converse in my neighborhood and their wern't any :-)
August 3, 1980.. I mean 1970.
My delivery date: May 12. 1956 (04.40 hrs CET)
Chris, we must celebrate the celebration of not celebrating anything on National Nothing Day.
"...celebrate the celebration of not celebrating anything on National Nothing Day."
That's a deal! Mark it on your calendar :-)
First born in NYC on Fathers Day, June 15, 1947.
My 15 minutes of fame came when I was announced on WNYE and it's been downhill ever since.
Yes, I'm old, but I'm back from vacation!
December 13th, 1977
Norbert has me beat by a little. ;)
I have copies of U&lc older than you are.
Yes, I'm old, but I'm back in style!
Hey, I share my birthday with Peter Saville (October 9). But mine is in ’67.
Does anyone have an interesting progression of their birthdate, like January, 23, 1945 (1-23-45) or March 21, 1954 (54.3.21)?
I graduated from Carnegie Mellon (Carnegie Tech at the time) on 6-6-66 and have had the Devil to pay ever since :-)
My index in the MyFonts database is 666.
Laurence swears it was a coincidence. Blasphemy.

Sorry to disappoint you bud, but I might be even younger than you. ;) December 4th 1985.
Hey Tiff... as long as you're compiling dates, I noticed that David Carson's birthday (today) is in the calendar as a timed event, rather than a 'all-day' event. Just something to tidy up while you're under the hood.
Yeah. I noticed that also, Grant. I'm still waiting for the keys though.
Matthew Carter's is kerflunky as well (October 2nd).
