To: Registrants for the Engelbart Colloquium at Stanford: An In-depth Look
at the Unfinished Revolution."
Doug Engelbart here, welcoming you to the online community associated
the Stanford Colloquium. I would like to emphasize that the purpose of
Colloquium and community is not just to transfer information/knowledge,
also to begin the development and evolution of an appropriate Improvement
Infrastructure -- scalable to national and global inclusion.

ultimately determined by the collective participation of many individuals
and organizations around the world. As I emphasized in the first
