Put A Smile on Your Face, It's Smiley's Birthday!
Read the Article: Smiley was invented in Pittsburgh 30 years ago.

In September 1982, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh posted a symbol on an internet bulletin board.  I never knew this symbol started right in my own backyard, but we learn something new every day.  This symbol revolutionized the way we communicate online today.  It's 3 marks...colon, hyphen, close parentheses.  Put em together and whaddya got?  Not bibbidi bobbidi boo, but this little guy ---> :-)

That's right, it's time to say happy 30th birthday to the emoticon.  Let's celebrate below by posting your favorite emoticon, can be something that we may not even use here on the Q.  Tonight we're having a Smiley birthday party!Put A Smile on Your Face, It's Smiley's Birthday! Photo
