Evolution of Alphabet

Where does our Latin alphabet comes from? Why are letters in that order? Why do they have these shapes?

I ♥️ TEXT-MODE

Some say that the blog format is dead, but I would not turn off my RSS feed reader for anything in the world. There is some blogs I’ve been following ten years. And in the ever changing landscape of social media, I’ve always come back to the blogs to find peace.

This is still true today. The self-hosted feed reader is probably the last space where I don’t feel manipulated by some machine learning algorithm into looking at something.

And to celebrate this, I give you my favorite: Text-Mode, which today posted this marvelous flip book of Marilyn Monroe.
