“There is a significant difference between not getting a deal signed and having your head cut off. Business is mental. War is mental and physical. The true warrior has not difficulty understanding this difference regardless of all the hype suggesting that ‘business is war’. It absolutely is not.”

Doug Engelbart

I’d never heard of Doug Engelbart (and that’s a pitty) until after he departed from his body on June 2. His visionary talk about computing from 1968 is mind blowing. Two things struck me … one, the obvious, is the vision he had and the way he brought it to it life. The second was how he had also (inadvertently?) planted the seeds of the a major shortcoming of user experience – the technical/engineering approach that trumps the emotional aspects of human life. 45 years later and I still don’t use a computing device to make a shopping list – pen and paper still works much better for me. MAYBE (

Anyways, fantastic talk:
