So,... Here's Ivan Sutherland blowing your mind

Just by chance I stumbled upon an Ivan Sutherland's talk. And Listening to this guy is an enlightening experience.

The pace of his talk is calm but not slow, concrete but not obvious, and man.... he talks about history that he's lived in his own self.

For those who do not know who's Ivan Sutherland, he's the guy who invented sketchpad, where many of the concepts that today we give for granted, and some that we're just starting to develop now (most of it in the early sixties).  Here's the link to the sketchpad thesis, in case you want to read about it.

Btw, thesis supervisor: Claude E. Shannon.

Here's the talk. Give it a shot. Insight level: "Alan Kay".
