@aral @0lvr yea this! Also, this whole Bionic Reading seems to just make the first half of a word bold. (They seem to offer some tuneables, which doesn't really make stuff more complex) That can easily done on the server or via some local JS. No need to include services from third parties and leak information about your users.

#accessibility post i found on tumblr:

some of you may've heard about that fancy "bionic reading" typefont thats supposed to be easier for #neurodivergent people to read (if you're unfamiliar, it bolds the first few letters of each word to make it easier to follow)

well guess what, its locked behind a $500 a month API to write in because fuck you!

introducing, Not Bionic Reading! it is literally just the bionic reading typefont but for free. god bless neocities

I finished the font! You can download it on OpenGameArt for use in your own projects:

opengameart.org/content/pixtur

In addition to just looking cool (because Textura is always cool), it can optionally (and if your art program supports it) automatically apply a bunch of abbreviations and variants to make Latin text look more authentic.

Thinking of the art dealer who during WW2 sold Vermeer art to Herman Goering. After the war he was arrested as a traitor and his defense was that he actually was a master forger and they were all fake. Turns out he was and they were so the court said "cool, stealing from Nazis is cool". The lesson is, steal from Nazis is fine and cool

According to this comment on HN:

> My favorite part of this story is that they DAO has actually raised ~$8m, spent $3m on the book (10x the expected auction price), then the "core team" has started paying themselves ~$30k a month each[0]. Also, how is this "decentralised" when one person owns over 50% of the voting token?
