44th Anniversary of Mother of All Demos

Posted on Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 12:11 pm by grantbow


On December 9th, 1968 a team of researchers in Menlo Park from SRI’s Augmentation Research Center put on a live, remote demo in San Francisco of their custom built computer system conceived to help solve the world’s complex, urgent problems. The capabilities they showed are still in some ways more advanced than all the marvelous technology that has come since then. The demo was later called the Mother of All Demos. Some of the firsts they showed were the mouse, chording keyset, video conferencing, and resizable computer windows.

Please join us today on the second Sunday of December at Bobby G’s Pizzeria in Berkeley from noon to three if you wish to celebrate this anniversary or just talk about anything related to Linux.
