:-) says more than a 1000 words

Just saw an article about Prof. Scott E. Fahlman. Who? Well, he happens to be the guy that introduced the smiley 🙂 25 years ago. What a powerful 3 key stroke message that was. Is there a single Internet, SMS, or MSN user that doesn’t use the smiley to express his or her emotions ? Showing emotions in (on-line) conversations makes them much ore interesting, don’t you think? Anyone know what we will be using the next 25 years as a smiley equivalent? Will it be more media enabled or will we stick with the 3 key strokes :-). Thumbs up for Prof. Fahlman!
