Very interesting and timely.  My property assessment just went up 300%, with those types of jumps I can only imagine this getting worse.

This is far and away the best piece you will read on Doug Englebart, visionary dreamer of the possibilities of collective intelligence, who died two days ago at the age of 88.

I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Doug a couple of years ago. We played with his mouse prototype and talked about collective intelligence.  I urged the people who were doing an oral history project with him not just to focus on drawing out what he had worked on so long ago, but his reaction to what we'd made of it since.

 I wish I'd been armed with Bret Victor's perspective back then; I would have gotten so much more out of my afternoon with Doug.
A few words on Doug Engelbart. Bret Victor / July 3, 2013. Doug Engelbart died today. His work has always been very difficult for writers to interpret and explain. Technology writers, in particular, tend to miss the point miserably, because they see everything as a technology problem.
