Those Valuable Little Dots

Those Valuable Little Dots

This is an excellent read on the history of punctuation. It’s hard to imagine having had to put up with massive texts without it, but that’s what the ancient Greeks and Romans did.

The article also includes some interesting thoughts on the impact of technology on this evolution: as what was once fluid and changing got locked in by type setting, and now seems to be evolving once again in a digital world (hello emoticons). 

Great catch, Teodora Petkova.

Scriptio continua

🙂 I am not the best with commas, semicolons etc 🙂 but I have an “excuse” and that is scriptio continua  Now I have a good resource to refer to too.

Great article about the history of punctuation.
