Blissymbolics: Mister Symbol Man and the Prophet of Doom

Wednesday 11 Dec 2013 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Charles K Bliss, an Austrian who lived here in Sydney, invented an amazing visual language.

His goal was to produce an ideographic language that could be read by all people, regardless of their native language. Its most effective use was as a communication tool for severely handicapped children. This talk is about Charles, his life, and his language. 


Our presenter will be JavaScript's answer to Chuck Norris, Douglas Crockford, and he's appearing as part of the YOW! Conference Season.

The first 40 RSVPs will get to join us. Hope we see you there! 


WHEN: 6pm - 8pm, Wednesday 11 December

WHERE: Tank Stream Labs, Level 1, 17-19 Bridge Street, Sydney
