    Etc.: CNET: Computing legend Douglas Engelbart dies at 88
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Thursday, July 04, 2013



    Douglas Engelbart – whose work was behind such computing mainstays as the mouse, graphical user interfaces, and hyperlinks – has died at 88.

    In an e-mail, Engelbart's daughter Christina said he had passed away peacefully in his sleep Tuesday night.

    Among techies, Engelbart is perhaps best known for what tech writer Steven Levy once called "the mother of all demos."
