Doug Engelbart 1968 Demo. Phil sez: “A video of a demo given by Doug Engelbart at SRI in 1968, of their online computer system. The first appearance of the mouse and includes hyperlinking, collaboration over a network and input by a chording keyboard. It’s fascinating to watch the guy demo this groundbreaking stuff live.” Link Discuss [Boing Boing Blog]

One of the seminal events of the modern computing age. If you want to understand the roots of much of what we now take for granted, understanding Engelbart and his work is essential.
