father of the emoticon

Posted: September 19, 2008 in Stumbled Upon

In the latest issue of Wired, I finally saw a picture of the man who “brought a smile to the Internet,” Scott Fahlman.

Don’t you think it’s kind of cute to see the man who gave birth (er created) to the emoticon? Without these symbols internet messaging and cyber conversations won’t be the same. šŸ™‚

Click here to see his smiley face.

Although, we should also give credit to the man who inspired the emoticon. Got to get a peek of that guy’s photo too.
