Description

For IN the NOW with Anissa Naouai, The Resident discusses the implications of a recent court ruling in New York City. In the trial of Ross Ulbricht, who stands accused of being the man who built black-market website, Silk Road, under the pseudonym Dread Pirate Roberts, the judge has ruled that chat logs permissible as evidence should be read by jurors so that they'd be able to see relevant emoji and emoticons. It's official: language has evolved in this new tech age.
