billdar writes “As texting evolves into it’s own language, a Northern Colorado Business Review article covers an ambitious project to develop a new symbol-based language called iConji for mobile texting and online chatting. ‘iConji is a set of user-created 32×32-pixel symbols that represent words or ideas, not dissimilar from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics or American Sign Language.’ There is an instructional video for the iPhone app and it is also integrated into Facebook.”
Behind this project is Kai Staats, formerly CEO of Terra Soft Solutions, the original developer of Yellow Dog Linux.
