History of Computing - Video Files of Interest
Here are links to various video files of interest in the history of computer science. If links go bad (because some are linked to youtube, and may go stale), please send mail to help AT cs.rutgers.edu.
- In 1968, Doug Engbard at SRI presented one of the most important -- for computer interaction -- demonstrations ever. In it, he and his associates presented the first example of a computer mouse, AND the first example of a 'chord' keyboard. Mice revolutionized computer interaction (a decade or so later), and we have yet to integrate chord keyboards (so they are presented at least 40 years ahead of their time.) This link will take you to one of several versions of the talk, or if you want, you can jump right to the best one.
