person Douglas C. Engelbart, the inventor of the mouse.
On 1968-12-09, Douglas C. Engelbart and the group of 17
researchers working with him in the Augmentation ResearchCenter at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park,
California, USA, presented a 90-minute live public
demonstration of the on live system, NLS, they had been
working on since 1962. The presentation was a session in the
of the Fall Joint Computer Conference held at the Convention
Center in San Francisco, and it was attended by about 1000
computer professionals. This was the public debut of the
computer mouse, hypertext, object addressing, dynamic file
linking, and shared-screen collaboration involving two persons
at different sites communicating over a network with audio and
video interface.
