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.

If people were intelligent, they'd be self-negating prophecies.


Thanks for tirelessly demonstrating by example how some people are not very bright, and in some cases downright crass and classless indeed. Obviously we could have not been able to figure that one out without your defecation on this thread.

So, thanks again! You sure added to the understanding and celebration of Prof. Engelbart's legacy and context...
