Amazing 9 part series of Doug Engelbart demoing some pretty advanced GUI and networking functionality in the 60s.

Great video! I bet when people saw that they thought it was science fiction. I mean a freaking mouse in 1968! A computer with cut and paste! That computer would look great on the original Enterprise. Silly Scotty would try to talk to it though. "Hello Computer....Hello!" Cool stuff it's funny how xerox never did anything with the Gui and then Steve Jobs used it to create a computer revolution. I guess sometimes it takes a hippy idea man to get things done. :)
