A friend sent me this fascinating look back into computer history. A 1968 public demo of a prototype mouse and hypertext. Streaming video clips, taken from a 90 minute film of the event.

I remember seeing that before and being really amazed. My first computer in the 80's didn't even have a mouse, and yet in the last 60's Engelbart was demoing the mouse and hypertext basis of the web.

Thanks for the link - I'll bookmark it this time!
