Doug Engelbart invented the mouse, hypertext, and other foundational elements for what we have today in the way of cyberspace communications.  He received $10,000 from the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) for his mouse patent.  They sold it to Logitech for $80,000, and of course today there are billions of the little suckers generating perpetual revenue.   He remains devoted to achieving the Holy Grail: enabling the human species to fulfil its role as Earth sense-maker and cosmic force.  Below is the presentation he made to OSS ’94.
