Munroe on Engelbart and the Mother of All Demos

Randall Munroe on Douglas Engelbart

When I learned that Douglas Engelbart passed away 2 July, the next day I posted a note on my Google account to friends. I thought about posting something here as a more public acknowledgement, but let it slide. Now that that Randall Munroe has this marvelous bit available, I’m happy to echo it as a fitting tribute.

Is it time to watch the “Mother of All Demos” again? The Engelbart archives has it.

It’s also cool that this entry of xkcd is # 1234.
