That's an effective presentation.  I especially liked the two Stephen
Colbert clips.

Mark makes a good point here about how specialized Unicode technical
issues have their own special forums now.  I'd really not taken that
into account, and should have.

The public list is geared towards being a forum for developers and
Unicoders getting together to discuss various aspects of the Standard
and its implementation, along with general public users with specific
questions/concerns.  Another feature of this list is that new
character proposals can be vetted here, whether for a single new
character or an entire new script.

The display issues of yore no longer exist.  Technical and specific
aspects of Unicode have special forums.  New character proposals are
usually written by pros who have been through the process many times

It doesn't really leave us much to discuss, does it?

I'll be standing by in case anyone posts a question about how to
display "character-x" on their Windows 98 system.  Sigh.
