Zag To The Zig #40 :: Comic Sans, Crazy Patents and Central Banks goes Digital

Welcome to the new subscribers! All of a sudden there was a flurry of you. Nice!
What to expect from Zag To The Zig? A weekly collection of things that triggered my curiosity and/or challenged the status quo. And the odd emoji.
If you still like it in 3 weeks, feel free to invite some friends. Every little helps. 🙏🙏
