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.

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...

Hmm, don't remember seeing you defending Armstrong's and Turing's legacy in those other news items when people were really saying that giving them credit somehow diminishes other people's works.

As far as I am concerned, almost everyone, including your illustrious self, completely add nothing to the understanding or celebration either.

I guess it's easier for you to attack me than those other people when it mattered.
