Yeah. Very seriously, it’s very important to introduce Unicode early on in
education, even in a “hey, it’s not OK to exclude people who don’t speak
English or people whose names have diacritics from using the programs you
create” sort of way.

Ignorance and apathy for the world’s citizens is a terrible thing and I hope
that every year brings more access to tech, Unicode-enabled and ready, to
of humanity.
