R.I.P. - Doug Engelbart



...without whom none of us would be reading this on our computers the same way.

Doug Engelbart, inventor of computer mouse, dies at 88

Even though the article says that the use of the computer mouse is waning in an age where people use finger swipes to navigate, if that person is still using a desktop computer they're most likely using a mouse. There are still many, many of them in use throughout the world.

Rest in peace, Mr. Engelbart.
