Geotypografika Tech Update: On December 7th, this URL turned one year old, though, as you know, dear reader, active posting did not launch until January, 2008.
This essentially uninteresting event was wildly surpassed by the birth of little SuSu
in Doha, as it should be!

Intended essentially as a communication vehicle with current and former students, Geotypografika has somehow managed to attract a much larger audience,
merci beaucoup!
A non-profit research and open-source venture, it continues to remain advertising free and open to any and all contributors or collaborators.

Honto ni, domo arigato gozaimashta!

As of today, there 689 posts. I am humbled and grateful to report that Geotypografika
now averages over 84,000 page views a month, 25,000 unique visits, and 3.5 Pages/Visits (and 3,500 fargin icehole spams).

Above: Screenshot of the updated sidebar. Note the new drop-down categories and archives options. Toward the bottom, um abraço! An embrace. On occasion, this widget will also display the latest searched terms.

A thousand thanks to you, dear readers! Special thanks to the original theme creator Robert Ellis, who has moved on to Futurosity. Geotypografika has been modified here and there thanks to many late night Frankensteining CSS sessions gratis from Chris Burns, domo. If you remember, the patient actually died on one occasion, but we managed to resurrect it thanks to the ace server squad at ICDSOFT, who hosts this site as well as tÿpøgrafika.

A thousand thanks, dear contributors! Where would we be without the occasional posting or shared info from Elisabeth, Verena, Manar, Mona, Jenny, John, Chris,
and Dylan, or great mailings from Derrick?

A sincere thanks to all, um abraço from Geotypografika!

JAAAAAA! This anniversary has me sensing susurrations of a book, a book-book, a meta-book, Geotypografika-style. Do it now. Get in the chopper!
