Before the Emoji, There Were Hieroglyphics | Mark Van Stone | TEDxChulaVista
Mark Van Stone explores the evolution from ancient hieroglyphics to emojis.
From his earliest years, Dr. Van Stone was self-taught, ravenously devouring any book he could find. Earning a degree in Physics from Oxford, he initially worked in Gamma Ray astronomy. Then, studying calligraphy for the next 20 years, he became the recognized expert on Paleography. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
