The Development That Made the Whole Web :) … “The Digital Smiley Face Turns 25”
Dan’s The Wrong Advices Blog (www.thewrongadvices.com) posted this story. Constantly bombarded with flashing smiley face banner ads, I shutter at the mention of emoticons. However, this is a charming story about the first digital smiley face and I enjoyed Dan’s statement, “Love them or hate them, emoticons do proved a quick and easy way to show emotion in an otherwise detached medium.” You can find another interesting story on emoticons at http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/29/fashion/29emoticon.html?_r=1&oref=slogin.
