For my final project I’m considering implementing TTF or similar output to my generative project. Hence, I’ve been looking into other generative typography projects:
An analysis of generative design strategies in terms of creating display fonts with vvvv.
Thesis work by Philipp Steinweber, also in german, so I have no idea what he’s talking about. It seems to not output font files.
According to the site:
Plagiairc is a chat software which uses Facebook chat or Google Talk (jabber). It creates private chat with other Facebook/Google talk contact. But the interface will not allow the speaker to express himself through a classic keyboard. Indeed, to create a new sentence, he will have to use the words of others, the specific semantics of public chat room users. He will choose « public » words from a database of 40 000 sentences (English or French) recorded on the Internet Relay Chat (I.R.C.), an Internet text messaging network mainly designed for group communication.
