AC – Large-Scale Collective IQ

Doug Engelbart, founder of the Bootstrap Institute. Inventor of the mouse.

Talk – strategically improving our capability for coping with complex, urgent, large-scale problems. Moved down to the Bay Area in 1948. At 25, thought about his career and came up with: “let me design a professional goal which will maximize the contribution my career can make to mankind.” How can we go about getting collectively smarter? That led him to working with computers.
