IRL Abbreviations

In preparing for the class in week 7, I want you to think about the method behind the madness of modern abbreviations. We'll be making a list of commonly used abbreviations (that you all use today) on the Github wiki. Navigate there and add your own commonly used shortforms...
Then install some medieval inspired unicode fonts, which will allow you to put together a document as if you were a medieval scribe using typical abbreviations. Instructions for installation follow. We'll be using the fonts/ their voluminous codebooks in class for week 7.
