Why does the new yorker display a sans serif font before their custom serif font loads. I have a lot of questions about the new yorker

@alex gemini is cool but the fact that it has a relatively high barrier to entry means that in my view the content is limited to linux nerds. I want to make a modern web-app with like an easy to use editor and all that so that laypeople can make gemini sites, while also making extremely lightweight sites that can be viewed over http (via proxy). wonder if this goes "against the spirit" of gemini. may put together an alpha demo & share on the mailing list

Thinking about making "geocities for gemini" -- an easy to use (for non-technical people) frontend for gemini. would serve proxied content. web app / editor portion would be over http, but all content would be served via gemini. non-technical users could view gemini via proxy. seems like an interesting way to make gemini accessible to those w/o linux sysadmin experience
