Doug's Demo at 50

The 9th of December 2018 will be the 50th anniversary of Doug Engelbart’s seminal ‘Mother of all Demos’. site

On the 9th of December 1968 Doug Engelbart ushered in the future of interactive computing, dealing lighting with both hands at what would become known as the ‘Mother of all Demos’.

In anticipation of celebrating this day, we ask the question: “What can it mean to augment human intellect in the 21st Century?” to which the inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, adds; “could we even resurrect the capabilities he demonstrated back then?”

Doug’s vision, and what we are inspired to follow, was to ‘augment our ability to solve urgent, complex problems collectively’. How can we make a massive contribution to this vision today, with all the new technological capabilities available to us, in an environment of deeply entrenched legacy systems? We are focusing on his vision of a OHS toolset to enable a truly DKR environment.
