Ts-ang Chieh

It was said that Cangjie, the legendary inventor of Chinese writing, got his ideas from observing animals’ footprints and birds’ claw marks on the sand as well as other natural phenomena. From these he took inspiration and inscribed representation of these forms onto sticks, therefore creating the first Chinese pictograph characters.

An ancient story recalls when Cangjie created the first characters, the gods caused heavy rains, loud thunder, and great earthquakes; so upset that a human had cracked the code to the mysteries of the universe.

His name is now also used to refer to one of the methods used to input Chinese characters on computers.
