In the future, what typeface will have represented 2015?

Designers, type designers, font geeks - I need your help please. In the past, each "era" has had a typeface that came to represent the "spirit" of that era. Can you recommend me typefaces that you feel are poised to capture this new era we are entering...this time where computing breaks free of the desktop and we interact in new ways with "the cloud" in everything we do wherever we are?

What's the best font to use for a readable, 20-page document?

What's the best font to use for an approximately 20-page document? I'm applying for something and I need to send in a summary of the proposed project. I would normally use Times but I'm worried it's too cramped—it's really quite squeezed in there compared to other fonts. Is there a better one with a little more space? I feel like it should be common enough to be found on most machines, as I think the application will go in both electronically and on paper.

I'm looking for either a font that simulates the logo of the CRUNK!!! energy drink, or a way to fiddle with an existing font in such a way as to emulate it. For reference here is the logo. It'd need the whole alphabet, but punctuation and lower case isn't required.
