Identicons

I stumbled across this post over at Coding Horror on Identicon’s.It links to this original work over at Don Park’s blog. It made me wonder how our written language evolved and how it continues to evolve.

The characters in language are combined to produce words, and words are combined to produce sentences. With our language we can come close to representing any number of concepts, but its not necessarily very concise. The hybrid symbols that folks like Don Park are coming up with could well be writing the language that we use in the future.

Interesting stuff.
