Fun read in the Washington Post about two spaces vs one space after periods.

"One space between each sentence, they said. Science just proved them wrong."

Results are more nuanced than the headline suggests, and the science itself leaves much to be desired, but the article is really enjoyable.

@tomasino Much like Vim vs. Emacs, this is definitely one area where my own personal bias is too strong to overcome.

On a related note, a friend of mine back in college would often use 3 - 4 spaces after periods. I was almost too triggered to read anything he wrote. Not really, but it was bizarre.
