@Dan - Totally agree that helvetica was fascinating. I find myself seeing
it everywhere now.

This course is a cross-polination. I wanted to take it and thought other
devs might so I pinged the dev list - and a discussion group is a bonus
since the actual course doesn't have that. As for the content, I have no
idea what it is going to be since no one at p2pu is involved with that.

A had added your email to the mailinglist group. Did you get the email with
the subject Hack Design Discussion Group? That's the email group - it's
similar to how the MOOC is running it's groups.
