why are cuneiform symbols in unicode lol

one of the goals of unicode is to represent all forms of human writing both present and past as a means of preserving history

since when was unicode interested in preserving history? its a corporate consortium for encoding interoperability lol

Ok maybe i worded that a little too generously but one of their stated goals is to support the scientific community, including people studying ancient languages. Like sure there are corporate entities on their voting board, but the unicode consortium is a non-profit and provides an essential set of standards that make managing text on computer way easier than the bad old days.

Like come on, get off my case.
