    Teen to government: Change your typeface, save millions

    This is an awesome use of computer softwware to enable a better future. This kid has a very bright future if he keeps down this path, I only hope that the generation up and coming understands that even the smallest changes can help with the preservation of the planet.



    Teen to government: Change your typeface, save millions

    (CNN) -- An e. You can write it with one fluid swoop of a pen or one tap of the keyboard. The most commonly used letter in the English dictionary. Simple, right?

    Now imagine it printed out millions of times on thousands of forms and documents. Then think of how much ink would be needed.
    OK, so that may have been a first for you, but it came naturally to 14-year-old Suvir Mirchandani when he was trying to think of ways to cut waste and save money at his Pittsburgh-area middle school.

    It all started as a science fair project. As a neophyte sixth-grader at Dorseyville Middle School, Suvir noticed he was getting a lot more handouts than he did in elementary school.

    Interested in applying computer science to promote environmental sustainability, Suvir decided he was going to figure out if there was a better way to minimize the constant flurry of paper and ink.
