Great article! This is a subject I've been thinking a lot about. I've been researching ancient languages, it's really interesting to note that our first Cuneiform systems were used for several languages in the region - and were really complex often with over 600 different symbols, that was at around 3200 BC - then by 1000 BC we have our first Alphabets, which were a huge innovation in both in precision and being concise. Really fascinated by where we might be going with communication today.
Here are a couple of other great reads in this vein.
