Description

From University Video Communications:

"Alan Kay is best known as a pioneer of personal computing, the conception of the intimate laptop computer and for inventing the now ubiquitous overlapping window interface. He is considered a founder of modern object-oriented programming. These ideas and inventions stem from his deep interest in education and children. In the early 1970's he led the Learning Research Group at Xerox PARC that developed those ideas into Smalltalk, overlapping windows GUI, etc. LRG jointly with other groups at PARC developed modern workstations and the forerunners of the Macintosh, Ethernet, laser printing and network "Client-servers."
