Boosting Our Collective IQ: A Selection of Readings, by Douglas C. Engelbart (1995, 2008)
In this timeless call to action, Engelbart makes the case for pushing more aggressively into the frontier of the knowledge age, identifying the points of greatest leverage for strategic, cost-effective pursuit. Challenging our established notions of knowledge work, collaboration, knowledge management, interoperability, hypertext, and groupware, Engelbart outlines a new more powerful paradigm, calling for an open foundational, cross-cutting knowledge architecture, endowed with certain key features still largely missing from today's information technology paradigm that can dramatically improve how people can work together to solve important problems. He ends with a call to action for end-user organizations, developers, and other stakeholders to collectively, strategically, proactively lead the way into this frontier. 1a

Originally produced by Yuri Rubinsky with editing assistance by Christina Engelbart, as a keepsake tribute commemorating the 1995 SoftQuad Web Award presented to Doug at the World Wide Web conference in Boston that December, honoring his early and seminal contribution to the hypertext systems. Of the original print, only 2,000 softcover copies were produced, and 100 Limited Edition hardcover copies were printed, numbered, and signed by Doug Engelbart and Tim Berners-Lee. 1b

Includes three of Doug's key papers (edited), Epilogue and details of the Award, 31 pages in all. Re-released in 2008 to mark the 40th anniversary of Doug's historic 1968 Demo. 1c
