    40th anniversary of Douglas Engelbart's online computer technology demonstration
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Tuesday, December 09, 2008


    From the YouTube posting of the full video:

    ``On December 9, 1968, Douglas C. Engelbart and the group of 17 researchers working with him in the Augmentation Research Center at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, CA, presented a 90-minute live public demonstration of the online system, NLS, they had been working on since 1962. The public presentation was a session in the of the Fall Joint Computer Conference held at the Convention Center in San Francisco, and it was attended by about 1,000 computer professionals. This was the public debut of the computer mouse. But the mouse was only one of many innovations demonstrated that day, including hypertext, object addressing and dynamic file linking, as well as shared-screen collaboration involving two persons at different sites communicating over a network with audio and video interface.''

    Many of these technologies now serve as the basis of online "webinars," including of course Bioinformatics.Org's online conferences and courses.
