Always About Group Collaboration?


Has your work always been about group collaboration or was there a time when you were thinking more about the sole office worker?

Can you emphasize exactly what this sort of thing was? (Referring to the early system)

Answer: I think it was always, the linking idea was way back in the early sixties, why would you have links...

 Meeting of Engelbart's research sponsors: NASA, Air Force, ARPA (probably the first computer-supported meeting).

.au 11.127 khz 16 bits mono with µLaw 2;1 compression.

Originally recorded on an Apple Macintosh PowerBook using a SONY ECM-T145 condenser microphone and Adobe Premiere audio/video editing software. The original recording was saved as a QuickTime file at 22 mhz, 16 bits with no compression.
Due to Doug's characteristically low voice it was then imported into a Premiere project where the volume was raised in the project timeline three times (no filter) and saved as a QuickTime movie.
The document was then finally imported into Apple's QuickTime Player and exported as .au at 11.127 khz, 16 bits mono with µLaw 2;1 compression resulting in the version playing here.

Recorded: Session 1. 7/25/2000. Interviewed at Dr. Engelbarts residence in Atherton, California, early morning by Frode Hegland @.
