An odd world we live in sometimes: Some people can make the most minor and inconsequential of contributions to the world and get untold riches and rewards for it - whereas other people, like Douglas Engelbart, can affect literally hundreds of millions (probably billions) of people and get, well, not very much at all...

Yes, it's quite disgusting in a way. While he could have taken more legal action than he did, I suppose we should be thankful he didn't or else the mouse might not have ever evolved as much as it has.

But hey, at least he died before seeing his product get phased out. While I think there's another couple decades left until a realistic replacement to the mouse comes along, no inventor wants to know their product became obsolete in their lifetime.

Stupid idea, It'll never catch on

Another unsung visionary in the history of computing.
