In my talk together with Nadine Roßa at the ATypI conference 2011 in Reykjavík I explained why Germany and Austria need a capital Eszett character today. For those who couldn’t be there, I made a screencast of my talk, which can be seen and commented here. Keep in mind, that this talk was made for a small and special audience of type professionals. Feel free to also check out my earlier articles on this subject.

(And to the people quoted in this video: I didn’t want to offend anyone. But the typical arguments against the capital Eszett reflect the typical misunderstandings that people have concerning this topic. So using these quotes is a good way to resolve these misunderstandings.)
