Re: [NTG-context] New logo proposal

2019-01-29 Thread Clyde Johnston
The design is new, interesting and refreshing but being a traditionalist, I can't help think that it steps a little too far away from its TeX roots. ConTeXt is a derivation of TeX, a creation of Donald Knuth. Here is what he said about the logo for TeX: "English words like 'technology'
