What is ATYPI?
They're afraid of being stigmatized as anti-profit hippies.

Actually they do talk about this at ATypI. I know because I keep going to their meetings and I am even on the board. I even gave a talk about a Libre program TTFAutohint. :-) There is light. Keep going!
Some do talk about this, but the conversations have to be carried out in secret, covert operations and stealth. Then one day, enough people are talking and the revolution is afoot...
They do actually. I do. Come to ATypI and talk about it too! :-)
Designers like to think they are very creative but sometimes they can be very conservative about conforming to standard ideas of what is "professional".
