@Hixie Nothing that your are not aware of. Currently fonts don't have a non-SVG useful vector format and we are designing one but is much more constrained than necessary. I've been watching iconvg, and read ur whitepaper. Q is: other than NIH, any reason not to embrace & extend Lottie?
@Hixie It has proven itself on the wild. I use Telegram app daily and envy its slick emoji animations. There's rolling and renderers. Is compact. It's open source. Has a lot going for it that we can only dream of...
@Hixie It's not well-specified, and is JSON. That's where Google can embrace & extend and make a difference. The world needs an open vector format that doesn't reek Adobe.

@DavidLWillson @siavashs I also have known RMS for over 20 years. At one point hosted him at my apartment as well. I agree with Perens that RMS's obnoxiousness is part of his being autistic. I personally do not think he should be punished for that. 2/many
@DavidLWillson @siavashs However, at the same time, I've seen in how his action makes our communities less welcoming to women. I was the one who invited him to the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit in ~2009 as a keynote speaker; where based on an audience request, he acted out his St Ignatius skit. 3/many

To everyone curious why I quit my *very* lucrative job at @Facebook.
Happy to respond to anything people want to know. Ask me anything.
I negotiated an initial compensation package of $1M/yr and was hired as L7 Software Engineer in Feb 2019. At current wild stock prices I'd making over $1.5M/yr had I not quit.
