For the World's A B C's, He Makes 1's and 0's
By Michael Erard
published September 25, 2003

The opening paragraph:

Michael Everson, a 40-year-old typographer who lives in Dublin,
considers himself blessed because he has found his life's work: to be
an alphabetician to all the peoples of the world. Mr. Everson's
largest project to date - a contribution to a new version of Unicode
4.0, an international standard for computerizing text - is cementing
his reputation.
