It seems like, even though designing a meta-font is a quite challenge, the designer of meta-font has some advantages of postponing making decisions about many details such as just letting it generates forms itself and seeing how it turns out at the end. It sounds this whole process of creating the system is somehow relying on uncertainty. Will there be any precise way of predicting the result or a hint of manipulation?? First, since I have no background on designing meta-font, I cannot anwser to the question in a technical way, but personally it is always interesting to see for me how something turns out which is already off from my hand. I do that even when I make my own works because I appreciate the fact that reflecting expectation onto work is already a part of work (even the emotional tension as well)....... .... ....
