Question of the Day

Yesterday, we asked: Who is known as the “father of the emoji”?

Answer: That’s Shigetaka Kurita.

Congrats to…David Daniel, first to tweet the correct answer. An honorable mention shout-out goes to Traveling Donna, who answered Scott Fahlman. Fahlman is actually credited with coming up with the Internet-era version of the emoticon :-) Of Kurita, Kay Bell asks, “he's in MOMA, but does he get a cameo in the Emoji Movie?” We’ll let you see the movie to find out, Kay. We’ve read the reviews.

Your question of the day for today is…MTV launched on this day in 1981, and believe it or not, “Music Television” originally played a lot of music videos. In 1987 it broke that format for the first time with the debut of what show?
