How Douglas Engelbart Invented the Future | Innovation | Smithsonian

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/15

Two decades before the personal computer, a shy engineer unveiled the tools that would drive the tech revolution

Don’t read this as a historic piece, but as the potential we are still going to experience what was not just sketched by a true visionary in 1968, but also demonstrated back then: [Archive.is] How Douglas Engelbart Invented the Future | Innovation | Smithsonian.

I am including one of the pictures below by Christie Hemm Klok that shows how far Engelbart was ahead of his time: not his initial invention of an input device (the mouse) “chord” kind.

After that, read about his 1968 presentation: The Mother of All Demos – Wikipedia

Finally, watch the video below, well worth watching the more than one and a half hours.
