Because it will have / different aspects and thoughts, like: Why we made typography / in my typography classes at the end of the 60ies so and / not so like many others. Why we see typography not like Ruder, / why we came automatically to the transparency of filmmaterials, and / how we work with this material. What are my teaching / principles. How I make a poster (will show on an example with overheadprojector). What can be the future of typography. / What we are doing now on the Computer (Mac). For what can be / this Computer needful. Why we keep our lead-typeshop / for ever. Why we have so many American students or from other / countries. Is our teaching method the wright [sic] method for / the practice. What is the difference of our school-philosophy / from other schools........ and so on... But we have annyway [sic] only a little bit more than 60 minutes and than [sic] gets mostly / annyway [sic] boring.
