Metapolator, present + future

This is meant to be a presentation and a conversation. First, Peter Sikking presents and discusses Metapolator from a product, users and interaction design point of view. This includes: the vision that the Metapolator project has for future type design workflows and practice; demystifying parametric type design; how the future of type design could be a lot like the past. This is followed by a Q+A section. Peter has questions for the audience concerning the topics just presented. Surely the audience has questions for Peter & Lasse.
