  1. Comic Sans Creator Speaks at Boring Conference

    You have to tread carefully when inviting speakers to the annual Boring Conference, but the creator of the “world’s favorite font” was happy to attend. Vincent Connare didn’t intend for his creation to be so contentious, but despite 20 years of popularity among many users, Comic Sans may be the most reviled typeface in history. Connare revealed that the font took only three days to create as the Windows 95 software package was preparing to ship. Nevertheless, it has defied its detractors and continues to appear in the most inappropriate settings from mortuary invoices to tombstones.
