    I'm in an information science graduate program. I have potential
    support from faculty (if I can come up with an adequate description)
    for a readings seminar to discuss the philosophical and theoretical
    issues associated with Engelbart's ideas on augmentation.

    Where I need help is with possible readings for the class. We will
    want both Engelbart's own writing as well as writing that he drew upon
    in forming his ideas and writing that has drawn upon and expanded his
    ideas (whether they acknowledge him or not).

    The class would be targeted at students with some exposure (perhaps to
    "Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework") beyond "he
    invented the mouse" but nothing too deep with a goal of creating a
    high resolution context for the fundamental ideas.

    I can provide more detail on things if desired, but at this point I
    think it might be more fulfilling to see where this takes us.

    Thanks for your input.
