    Would be interested in hearing about various web font systems such as Google Fonts and Adobe TypeKit, and how they're used and integrated in practice.

    Glad to be back in Indiana and looking forward to the presentation! would love to hear how the presenters manage their font collections, and also maybe hear their top 10 most useful typefaces.
