Human-Computer Interaction Pioneer Dies At 88

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.
