I just started reading Knuth's book Digital Typography today (here's a paper included in the book). Anyone of us reading anything typeset on a computer (that's everyone reading this blog!) owes a lot to the man. Now I learn via slashdot that Knuth is set to announce something "earth shattering" tomorrow!
Is Volume 4 finally coming out? Will Windows get METAFONT support? I guess we'll find out soon!
Update: Apparently, it was some sort of joke. Knuth trolled the world :P
