My cute blog can’t be this disorganised!

      2 <p>I readed about <a href="http://dotsies.org">dotsies</a> which is a way to map a to z to letters of 5 horizontal bits. It felted a bit nice even if way too cybre and not human enough (a bit like our current keybaords are for entities with 10 tentacles and not 2 hands/arms that aren’t parallel on such a space).</p>
      3 <p>But well, I though about <a href="http://lojban.org">lojban</a>, a logical neutral language. This language only uses 28 non-blankspace characters(abcdefgijklmnoprstuvxyz,.') which makes it fully fit in 5 bits(2<sup>5</sup>=32 possibilities).<p>
      4 My proposition is:
      5 <ul>
      6 	<li>map lojban “’” to latin “h”</li>
      7 	<li>create one dotsie for “.” and maybe another one for “,”</li>
      8 </ul>
      9 <p>Having this would make a machine-human-? language work on a machine-human-? writing system. OCR on current human writings is horrible, this would allow more accurate OCR I guess as it’s barcode alike, and well we could add checksumming as we still haven’t used the whole address-space. 4 characters are left if I didn’t screw up the Math, we could totally have checksum-start/checksum-end and maybe text-start/text-end.</p>
