Where Did Emoticons Come From?

We all use the combination of characters to express some sort of emotion. Ever wonder where they came from? The 26th anniversary of the invention of the emoticon was Sept. 19. It was “invented” in 1982 on a faculty bulletin board (now called forums) at Carnegie Mellon University. Here is a link to the person that most attribute to creating the Internet craze. Wikipedia also has a large description on the whole history of “Smiley” outside of the Internet. Who ever knew such a simple thing would be such a phenomenon! 🙂
