On July 2nd, 2013, our Founder, long-time Director, and friend Doug Engelbart died at the age of 88. He leaves a rich legacy, including a revolution that he would say is still in its infancy. He will be remembered fondly as his strategic vision and insights continue to inspire generations to come.

“A thankful world stands in awe of his inventiveness, intelligence, generosity and humility.”
