ABSTRACT OF TALK
Mitch Waldrop, brings us the fascinating story of JCR Licklider and \"The Revolution that Made Computing Personal.\" Licklider may well have been one of the most influential -- and least known -- people in the history of computer science. As a division director in the Pentagon's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), in the early 1960s Licklider put in place the funding priorities which would lead to the Internet, and the invention of the \"mouse,\" \"windows\" and \"hypertext.\" Book signing and reception follows the lecture.
