Emote Me Sweetie

When our Jonny returned from a visit to Poland recently, he brought some fudge back for us.  Opening the wrapper made me think just how ubiquitous smilies now are.  This wasn't always the case of course. I remember, back at the turn of the millennium, interviewing potential candidates for Force9/PlusNet.  I'd enter the room with a sheet of A4, draw a big  ; - )  on it with black marker and simply ask "Can you tell me what this means?". As an ice-breaker, if you like, it worked a charm. Although I felt that if they didn't know what that meant, then they clearly weren't of 'the right stuff'. You couldn't do that these days to judge true net-nerdiness.. Everyone uses emoticons every day over email, SMS, IM etc.  Have YOU seen emoticons in strange places though? Polish Sweet Answers.., not on a postcard (that would be silly).. tell us about it here instead! (And the translation?  Something along the lines of "You will want more..") P-j

Emoticons, in strange places.. there is an company who I do work for, and their HR department have taken to putting emoticons on emails, printed documents, and in powerpoint presentations! We all know how they love to do those...
