A recommendation for an alternate character set.
Single cased character set (an A is just an A, "A" and "a" single character
The objective is to design a character set that represents
modern globalized information structures. The most important is the
character and the font that represents our knowledge.
This is the suggested representation for the character with
acknowledgement of how an improved font will advance information
representation, and open the path to better software development.
With a 104 character keyboard and only 64 keys being used for
software development, there is a lack of support at the most
fundamental technology that we use. An improved font will go a long
way in the human readability of our characters. Is it a one
or a lower case L, is it a zero or an "O".
31 control characters and we only use 3 of them. Unable for our
compilers to compare character or number at the hardware level.
The limitation of a blank and white world for software development.
The limitation for international sharing of information. Why
is the digital world using characters anyway, might it not be far
better to use words. 1=the, 2=a, 3=an, 4=I
, 5=me, ... or maybe phrases... 1="Never give up,
never surrender!" 2="I pick my battles". With the amount
of memory we have available, the basis of our technology should
change to take advantage whenever possible.
