Birth of the smiley

with 2 comments

The Internet emoticon : – ) was born today, 26 year ago.

You can find the story of its invention, along with a bunch of other internet related creation dates here.  Just look under 9/19/82.

The noseless variety seems to be more popular today and of course there are all kinds of variations.  I claim the millipede…   >o((((((((((((((((((((

  1. Wait, what does the birth of the smiley have to do with trashing McCain/Palin? I don’t get it. Are you saying McCain is old? Cause then I could make sense of this post.

  2. said in one breath: The smiley launched the same year that McCain started in the Senate. A lot has changed since then. This is not change we can believe in. Did you know he was a POW?
