I learned this morning that Doug Engelbart passed away this week.

It is impossible to overstate the impact the Engelbart and his team at SRI had on modern computing.  They pioneered use of the mouse, modern graphical user interface, hypertexting, networks, and much, much, more.

You can see an excellent article on Doug on Wikipedia here.
