Since August 2010, [d]online Medium has been downloaded 13,643 times on dafont.com. Since January 2011, era404 Regular has been downloaded 7,619 times.

These online typographers are fed up with the “old fontstacks of yesteryear”. So they’ve compiled a wonderful little online resource of fonts to use for @font-face, cufon, and open-source type. Serifs, sans-serifs, specialty, grunge and ding-bats. The League of Moveable Type touts “no more bullshit” and invites typographers to come join their revolution. Consider me enlisted. Read more
