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.

Trackball Inventor?

Anyone know what happened to the inventor of the trackball, Kenyon Taylor?

I suffer from RSI after using a mouse for many years and recently moved to a Logitech M570. It was like night and day in terms of comfort and stress compared to using even the most ergonomic mouse.

Wished trackballs had taken off more and there even better options than the limited selections in the market.
