50 years ago, the very first “keynote”

December 9, 1968, fifteen years before the commercialization of the first computer and forty years before the famous presentation of the iPhone by Steve Jobs, took place the very first “keynote” of the world. That day, Douglas Engelbart, a computer engineer from the Stanford Research Institute, gave a public demonstration of his latest innovations for the first time.

Among them: the mouse, the ancestor of the Google Doc and video conference, or copy and paste. In ninety minutes, Engelbart sets out most of the foundations of what still constitutes our graphic interfaces today: the link between man and computer.
