Doug Englebart's eerie demo of the mouse in 1968

While watching Doug Englebart's demonstration of the mouse in 1968 here: and I can't help get a feeling of chill, the same one when I saw Neil Armstrong land on the moon.

It also corrected my belief about "new" technology that I take for granted now, like the mouse. I was not even born when the mouse and graphical text editing was already fully functional! It took 20+ years before that technology reached our home here in the Philippines. It's a bit humbling.
