Very Sad News As Doug Engelbart Dies Aged 88


Douglas Engelbart was the man who invented the mouse. Yes there was a time when a computer didn’t have a mouse!

We are old enough to know what it was like working with a computer before the mouse came along. Nobody had ever contemplated a mouse so nobody knew what they were missing but it came as a revolution to PC use. Suddenly you could do ‘stuff’ on screen.

Thanks Doug – we all appreciate what you achieved. How much do those bastards at Apple owe you? Never did pay you did they? What would $40,000 be in today’s money?
