Howard Rheingold, Ted Nelson, and Doug Engelbart get together for Engelbart’s birthday

Wow. I wonder if this has happened before. Howard Rheingold invited Engelbart and Nelson to his place for a little chat. Looked like they had a good time. I really enjoyed listening to Nelson’s comments about the web. He speaks with such clarity on it.

It was also interesting to listen to Nelson’s wife talk about lyme disease. I vaguely remember hearing about a documentary that talked about some weird thing going on in the medical/insurance field, involving several doctors and a patent issue, around this disease that’s led to misdiagnosis for years for many patients. In light of this, hearing that she’s gotten conflicting information about the disease doesn’t surprise me. It sounds like a really unfortunate situation, though it also sounds like she’s probably gotten appropriate treatment for it.

Happy birthday, Doug 🙂

It’s Doug Engelbart’s birthday today. We wouldn’t be doing this without his vision and tenacity in realizing it.
