The inventor of the computer mouse, Douglas Engelbart, died on July 2 at his home in Atherton, California at the age of 88.
Engelbart was best known for his December 9, 1968 Stanford Research Institute demonstration in San Francisco that resulted in 21 patents including the original computer mouse and essentially introduced the first iteration of the internet.
OWC would like to offer our respects to the friends and family of this computing pioneer who’s genius established many of the principals of modern day computing.
The Mayans may have been wrong… We’ve got massive flooding in Thailand causing a world-wide hard drive shortage, asteroids are on the way, Internet Explorer is no longer on top of the web browser food-chain, dinosaurs will soon be roaming the earth while the Mac Pro goes extinct, people are talking to their phones now, the Mac platform is becoming more susceptible to viruses, there are dogs and cats, living together – it’s mass hysteria! Is November 2011 the end of what we know?
OWC Radio is a monthly, forum-based podcast focused on the events and happenings in the Mac community. This week’s hosts are: OWC Grant, OWC Chris S., and OWC Mike H.
