ABSTRACT OF TALK
Doug Engelbart, thinker, inventor, and humanitarian, shares the influences and struggles behind his life of research. Although, he may be best known for his tangible evidence of productivity -- the computer mouse, display editing, outline processing, multiple remote online users of a networked processor, hyperlinking and in-file object processing, multiple windows, hypermedia, context-sensitive help -- his desire has been to maximize his professional contributions toward helping humankind cope with complex and urgent problems. Pierluigi Zappacosta, founder of Logitech and chairman of Digital Persona, probes the visionary mind in this dialogue with Engelbart.
