You rarely hear complaints about the user experience of signing up/ using email. But that's (nominally, at least, gmail black hole aside) a decentralised service. It's just because people are familiar with it and it's where people already are. If a company came along and said - hey - for email - everyone on the planet must sign up to this one megaservice to exchange emails from now on. People would say - what a terrible idea. Because people are familiar with it not working that way.

Fediverse seems concerned about some kinda monetized fork of Mastodon but seriously they couldn't even afford a designer for their page, that's not a threat to anything. Move on

My goal is to discover/develop a viable method for this workflow:

1 - markdown files with basic yaml metadata, linked images
2 - converted to web pages with basic styling, crushed and dithered in a fashion similar to the solar site from low tech magazine
3 - also converted to a print friendly format, with a ToC, author info, and half/full/two page black and white dithered images.
5 - after proof is reviewed, a master of each page is prepared and hundreds of copies made.

My various opinions about typefaces are largely not founded in meaningful rigor with regard to design history but they sure are strident
