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.
wapo.st/2wc4Mnn"

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.
