Unicode: the Movie

Programmers and developers recognize Unicode as a super set of characters from nearly every language in the world and as a necessary standard to oblige to.  Unicode represents a set of of over 109,000 characters. While that number is impressive, the visual representation of that many characters is simply astounding. I came across a video on YouTube that flashes one Unicode character per frame; it lasts over 30 minutes. Watch the video for about 30 seconds, and you’ll get the idea.

Also, Lingoport‘s Adam Asnes shares how Unicode came into being and how it is a valuable tool for developers to develop in other languages.
