I've been developing a great penchant for appreciating street art. Little surprise that this has been around for a while.

LINEAR A

Linear A was the primary script used in palace and religious writings of the Minoan civilization. It was discovered by archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans. It is the origin of the Linear B script, which was later used by the Mycenaean civilization.

Like the Indus script this holds a lot of fascination for me. Especially implications of using nlp and  cryptography tools for this. Something to explore.
