Our industry is split in before and after in December 1968!
When Douglas Engelbart in a single demo showed the word the invention of computer graphics, the mouse, WYSIWYG, remote pairing, visual coding tools etc none of those things exited before and they all existed afterwards
Yet they where not the focus of Engelbart : he wanted to extend human cognitivity : alas he pointed at the moon and we looked at the finger!
Let's celebrate the mother of all deos by watching it and debating it
