However, I think a way through is emerging. I'm currently planing to concentrate on three people:
- Doug Engelbart - the inventor of the mouse and heavily involved in the development of networking and the GUI
- Alan Kay - the inventor of object-oriented programming and the Dynabook (the precursor of the iPad)
- Steve Wozniak - co-founder of Apple and designer of the Apple I & II
I'll also concentrate on three institutions: SRI, Xerox PARC, and the Homebrew Computer Club.
I know that this will cause some to howl "what about so and so" and "what about such and such" but it has to be done.
