If you ever made up your own language as a kid or enjoy speaking gibberish, visit Golan Levin's _Alphabet Synthesis Machine._ Levin's online project, an Art21 commission, encourages users to create imaginary alphabets. You start by making a scribble that becomes a guide for generating a series of glyph-like forms. The end result is your very own alphabet. Name and upload it to share it with the world, or, to use, download your alphabet as a TrueType font. Even watching the machine generate letters from a line drawing is fascinating in itself.
