The emoji was invented in 1999?

Really?

 

I mean, come on.  Maybe the word emoji, but the idea came from smilies, aka emoticons, long before and I was reviewing books on the topic before 1999 ...

I learned about IRC smileys... but my computers were always so far behind that new features* were unsupported until several years had passed.

*like emojis

Hmmm. The last section of the linked article tells about the "emoji d1ck." That just sounds SO wrong.

What if my given name were Richard?}

 

BTW, given that the article attributes the true graphical emoji to a Japanese originator I note the the Japanese also improved greatly on the original sideways smileys:

with their much more expressive Japanese upright smileys:

\(*o*)/ 

\(^o*}/

etc.
