Old people Icons - most kids won't know their origin.

2012-05-10

A fun article looking at common icons we use today and their historical meaning. My kids won’t have had any exposure to most (if not all) of the technologies that the icons are designed around.

The good part is people seem to be fine with associating a distinctive picture with an icon. As long as the icons are distinctive enough, they don’t have to be representative.
