Meanwhile... The Emoticon Turns 40

The Smiley emoticon was created by Scott Fahlman on September 19, 1982 when he suggested in an online message board that one should add :-) to online messages intended to be funny.  And the rest is history.

CSD's Smiley received birthday wishes from CNN Business and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (fast forward to the 3:40 timestamp).
