Visionary and Father of the Mouse Douglas Engelbart has died

Original post made by Lindenwood resident on Jul 3, 2013

The man behind the computer mouse and a host of other inventions that paved the way for the Internet has passed away. He won't be talked about in the way that Steve Jobs was, but he ought to be. He was a Silicon Valley giant and also a lovely neighbor.
