A silly but funny little video for typography nerds. Looks to be a bit of viral marketing, but entertaining all the same!

    As a Nisus customer, what I would like to read about on your blog is what you are currently working on. What new features in Nisus Writer you are planning and implementing and the struggles therein. After all that is your uniqueness. Nobody else can write about that.

    Thanks, Paul Howson, Australia.

    But they too must need some relaxation at times like all non-mythic human beings like me (and you?), I guess. And his (Max’s) masterwork made me think on some typographic problems for a while. So thank you, Martin, very much for the link.

    Anyway I’m quite sure that *the* Nisus Man is working just and every and each and right now… in his eternity ;-)))

    Anywahy, with my over ten years of experience of using Nisus products, I think I would not be so wrong in assuming that it is their idiosyncrasy (is it the right word? I’m not be very sure) that they do not mention a new feature/enhancement until they are very, very close to the release of a new version supporting it. So no news is not always a bad news.

    Seriously, for me, it is very nice to have as one of developers of my favourite text processing program one who is interested deeply not only in computer code but also in typography and caligraphy.

    Just my thought.

    There’s more Max Kerning to be had out on the web. He’s now got an evil twin, Les Kerning.
