Douglas Engelbart Demonstrates Interactive Computing...IN 1968!

This YouTube video shows Interactive Computing being demo'd in 1968! Wow! That's the year after I was born.  I had NO idea computing was that far along in the late '60s.  It's a long video to watch but just speed ahead every few minutes and you'll see some amazing technologies... considering the historic perspective.

Douglas Engelbart demonstrates interactive computing, at the Fall Joint Computer Conference in San Francisco: mouse, on-screen windows, hypertext and full-screen word processing. 
9 December 1968.
