Much More Than The Mouse

From Biff J Cantrell, CEO, Gizmo Sprockets, Inc

If people seem to know the name Doug Engelbart at all, the jump to just his invention of the computer mouse. But his reach has been so much more, as we experienced in 1975 when he came to brief us on the ideas of Augmenting Human Intellect.

As a result we changed everything we do.

I was pleased to have recently come across this later interview about Only Collective IQ can save us, words we heard back in our boardroom on that day

His reach has been so vast, deep, and affected all of our business to this day. We have this image framed in our main foyer

Doug and Doug

Yes, the mouse is great, and everyone can use more, but the man was bigger than the mouse!
