I negate your serif by flagrantly flipping this bit.

Noah pointed me to Typophile: The smaller picture, a collaborative effort to build up a typeface, one random pixel at a time. (Also linked on memepool today.)

It really is an excellent project. In addition to observing the current state of letters and contributing to the final form, you can watch animations of how the letters have progessed. It seems most letters converged quickly to recognizable forms, but have diverged since, possibly due to Web Moron Sabotage. Statistical analysis reveals impressively clear characters, with the only significant variance involving optional serif locations.

I love projects like this.
