Interesting topic Aug 3

One tends to think that pictures don´t need a special translation, specially in an image oriented time as ours.
Seems the start of a new speciallity. The problem of the emoji translator is that he is limited to texts that use emojis. And emojis are very much "in" today, but they may easily be replaced by something else tomorrow.

Interesting indeed Nov 16

When Emoji's are the new way of communicating, as presented in the video, then the old Egyptians already used them, only then they were called hierglyphics. So actually, nothing new under the sun.

Figures Nov 17

So we use emojis instead of words, and now we need some dude to turn them back into words.
