unicode superstar makes the NY Times

the NY Times has a nice article about unicode and one of it's leading lights, dublin-based michael everson. in that article he raises an interesting point concerning unicode, fundamental human rights. if you can't use computers because OS's don't support your alphabet, i'd agree your rights are being violated. the article further points out, something which i wasn't really aware of, how commercial support for the continued work of the unicode consortium is starting to decline as the major computer markets' languages are encoded. i guess klingon's unicode hopes are really slim and next to none.
