A lot of ink and pixels have been spilled railing at, beseeching, and/or emoji encoding and design decisions. But there's a bigger point that is often lost: emoji gave the technologically privileged the experience of being, for the first time, outside.

For years, I tried to get editors interested in stories about Unicode. "What's the big deal?" they said (I'm paraphrasing). "I can write the emails I want." Basically, English-speaking, Latin alphabet using people were never going to understand the digitally underserved.

DO NOT SMASH FROG'S "LIKE" BUTTON. REPLACEMENT "LIKE" BUTTONS CAN BE PURCHASED FROM THE FROG SYSTEMS INC. SPARE PARTS CATALOG (PART NO. 5419-80B), BUT ARE EXPENSIVE: AVOID A COSTLY REPAIR BY GENTLY TAPPING FROG'S "LIKE" BUTTON.

I'm a big fan of brew cask for its library of zap instructions, which remove all traces of an application, however it was installed.

The Zoom one has just been updated to remove the persistent server.

brew update
brew cask zap -f zoomus

Reminded that the Microsoft ebook store closes next week. The DRM'd books will stop working.

I cannot believe that sentence.

"The books will stop working."

I keep saying it and it sounds worse each time.

The underclass is obsolete, locked offline by deprecated hardware. You can't get online to buy new implants that will let you get online. You are confined to the meatspace ghetto

This is the real Java-Script because it is written in the Javanese alphabet:

This is apparently how you say ”Your device doesn’t get compromised by nation state actors” in a way that makes people to actually update...

Which is of course not to say that text encoding is (or can be) apolitical. On this topic I always recommend @chimeracoder@twitter.com's classic 2015 piece modelviewculture.com/pieces/i-

If anything, the importance of the campaign (and of representation and diversity efforts generally!) just underscores how bizarre it is to put these decisions in the hand of a text encoding standards body
