Comic Sans and the future

I’m afraid that when people in the future are going to depict type from our time, they will use Comic Sans. Consider this: Comic Sans is awfully popular, and the important thing for typography in a movie isn’t to be pretty, but to be authentic.

I hope this won’t be the case, but I’m scared.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.
