On Douglas Engelbart

This page is a tribute to Douglas Engelbart, with the hope that his vision is picked up by more and more people. This is important to me, because he was not only a brilliant inventor. He was first and foremost a man with a wonderful vision and an excellent goal in life.

Below are pointers to excellent articles and video’s about Doug and his work.
This is the first version of this page, at the occasion of Bart’s talk at the #valueconf19 Intranet conference in Brussels on May 23th 2019.
