Lispian Random meanderings on whatever catches my fancy

Lispian
Mother Of All Demos

Every so often I post about this video. It is truly something everyone interested in computers should watch. Done back in 1968 it shows pretty much everything we have today. It does make me wonder why it isn’t used to squash a lot of software patents that were so obviously demonstrated by Doug Engelbart that December in 1968.

This is the full video. It’s worth the one hour to watch this and be amazed at what was available back then and the vision of what would be, and then be saddened to realize it’s 40 years on and we’ve only accomplished some of what Engelbart envisioned.
