what smart kids do at art school

As a part of her MFA Thesis Project at the Visual Research Laboratory, State University of New York, Amy Papaelias created TypeTalk Fonts.

Most kids would produce a couple of fonts, and call it a day. But no. She's create a tool where you can type in a sentence, and it will automatically "translate" the sentence into the "language" appropriate for that font. For instance, "So I told him, we'd better get going." translates to "So I told him, like we'd better get goin', you know." using the Shy Slacker tool.

If she's doing this caliber stuff in college, I imagine she'll be controlling the world in about five years. From Notcot.

Reminds me of the old school translators back in the day. My favorite one was the Jive application. You'd run it on your green screen Mac. You'd type in a sentence and it would convert it to jive.
