Face Blindness

I’m adding a new category to this blog – don’t know if these “phenomenon” posts will be visible to anyone who links from my Typography archives, but here goes.

I’m interested in all kinds of things that I’m surprised to find are “things” – and because “things” is too vague, I’ll categorize them as phenomena.

I used to obsessively read Usenet groups because I was fascinated by the endless array of subjects that people were compelled to lose themselves in. I’ll save some of them for another post.

Today I learned about the phenomenon of “Face Blindness”. Here is some basic background, but there’s much more. Apparently there is an active FB community. I don’t know why that surprises me, since there’s a community for just about everything (except things I like, it seems).
