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.

I consider my comment to be positive in preempting responses that will try to diminish Engelbart's accomplishments as negating other's works, as have happened on two previous occasions regarding Neil Armstrong's death, and Turing's suggested pardon.
