The making of the font is a political statement against government machinery and software spying on us and taking our humanity away. As such, I'd say it's quite clever and attention-getting.
Oh, I thought the point was figuring out how many unsuspecting netizens could be fooled into seriously discussing what is obviously a joke.
I mean, first we get a whole uproar about the NSA wiretapping, as if this is news. This was going on when Bush the second was president, and was widely discussed at the time. Really, this isn't news.
Then we get people seriously believing things like the NSA using more storage capacity than has actually been manufactured worldwide, or an operation like what the NSA was purportedly carrying out costing only 20 million dollars.
And now people are seriously talking about a *font* that is supposed to somehow stymie these efforts.
Clearly, someone is playing some netwide joke on us. The thing is, I'm not really amused, because there are real issues here and real people are being negatively affected by all this nonsense.
