Although I was very impressed with Engelbart’s accomplishments, talking to a general audience is not one of them. It would have been better to read an essay written at a more general level explaining the accomplishments of Engelbart. The video did help. I do truly appreciate the amazing things he was able to do in the 1950′s and 60′s. We do forget sometimes where we came from and the video did illustrate that. I did not really get much of anything out of his text. I am not convinced that his written works should even be published. Maybe there is an audience that can follow his narrative and not get bored. I am not sure. I hope this week is much better.
