Even More Emoji Abuse 🚧🚨

Even More Emoji Abuse 🚧🚨

In 2012, I wrote a post titled Abusing Emoji in iOS and Your Mac 👑💩: http://zachholman.com/posts/abusing-emoji.

People seemed to like it, since I saw a lot more wifi networks and Macs on the network whose names consisted of emoji. If that's not progress for our society, I don't know what is.

After all my talks over the years, I somehow had never given a lightning talk until last night at SydPHP's meetup in Sydney. I knew I needed to go big and bring something huge to the table for my first time. Instead, I settled on giving a shitty one about emoji instead.

The first half of the talk comes from the aforementioned post; the second half is culled from my jetlag-addled brain. That half includes emoji at your local florist, trolling your British friends who never use emoji, and my new favorite, the Languages hack that lets you install emoji across all of OS X.
