Interviews & Essays

Belinda Barnet and Doug Engelbart

From Belinda:
This interview has never been published, so I thought I'd send it to the list because it has historical value. Wanted to make a copy that's accessible to people. The man interviewed below is called Doug Engelbart - among other things, he invented the mouse, gave the world's first public demonstration of what became the WIMP interface (a design that went to Xerox and then on to Apple), created the first working hypertext system, and also pioneered video conferencing. His lab was the network information center for the early ARPANET.
