Typography? Really?

I cannot believe I read this whole article on typography, although it does feed my theory that the New York Times needs to stop pretending to deliver news.

Among the things typographers think about:
Choosing an inappropriate typeface is one problem. Applying one inaccurately is another. Sadly for type nuts, movies often offend on both counts. Take “Titanic,” in which the numbers on the dials of the ship’s pressure gauges use Helvetica, a font designed in 1957, some 45 years after the real “Titanic” sank.

I don't really get the love of font (at all), but hey, who am I to judge hobbies? Especially when I spend my free time writing...this...oh.
