In the News "Douglas C. Engelbart, a visionary scientist whose singular epiphany in 1950 about technology's potential to expand human intelligence led to a host of inventions - among them the computer mouse - that became the basis for both the Internet and the modern personal computer, died on Tuesday at his home in Atherton, Calif. He was 88." We lost one of the greatest - if not the greatest - visionaries of computing today.

I am unsure why comments thus far are only denigrating. An undeniably influential man (who has influenced ALL our lives) has passed on and instead of cynicism we should pass on our condolences and sympathies to his family and highlighting the impact of his work.
