Is there somewhere a comprehensive account of the development of ASCII?

Sweet! Last month I was at the CBI looking through the Mooers archive. I saw all the X 3.2.4 papers, which is why I hoped someone else had written about it. And you did, and also visited the CBI. (My own interest is in Mooers' impact on chemical information.)


Wow, please post that to HN!

What else have you written?

That's amazing. Thank you!

Can somebody explain me why ASCII seems so relevant? Especially still relevant? I am from europa and when i used ASCII then only accidentally. Why not everyone is using utf-8 as default is beyond me.
