Digital 'smiley face' turns 25

Yahoo! News: "It was a serious contribution to the electronic lexicon. :-) Twenty-five years ago, Carnegie Mellon University professor Scott E. Fahlman says, he was the first to use three keystrokes — a colon followed by a hyphen and a parenthesis — as a horizontal 'smiley face' in a computer message."

Happy anniversary Smiley. :-)
