:-) turns 25

Talk about growing up in the digital age. I just ran across an article on CNN that the :-) (literally, the smiley face) turns 25 today. That makes me just slightly older than the emoticom. 6 months and 3 days to be exact ; )

  • 25 years ago professor Scott E. Fahlman first used the computer "smiley face"
  • :-) posted to an online e-bulletin board at 11:44 a.m. on September 19, 1982

Read the whole article here.

Ohh and my favorite is when you use emoticoms on Google chat and it rotates the face! Love it! The hearts are super cute! <3 (if only Blogger would take the cue)
