For next week, I will provide an introduction to the conceptual framework of Douglas Engelbart and also introduce the Program for the Future Challenge www.programforthefuture.org/challenge being launched by The Tech Museum of Innovation. I hope I will be joined by Rob Stephenson the Online Curator of The Tech –at 8 am Palo Alto on March 5th. In this email, I am also inviting the other members of the Program for the Future Challenge committee to join us if they can.

 Here is the link to Douglas Engelbart’s presentation and paper hosted at the IBM Co-Evolution (of Human and Tool Systems) Symposium – organized by Jim Spohrer, head of IBM Services Research who sits on the board of Bootstrap, the organization founded by Engelbart.

    Sorry to miss this. I have a fairly good understanding of Doug’s co-evolution design and I know MeiLIn will do a good job expressing it.
