Video: Doug Engelbart at IJ-4

Here is the video recording of Doug Engelbart's keynote at the Fourth Conference on Innovation Journalism.

The title of the talk is "Augmenting the collective IQ of societies." Doug Engelbart is known as the father of the concept of the personal computer, and inventor of the computer mouse. He is a proponent of the development and use of computers and networks to build collective intelligence that can solve the world's problems.

The introduction of Doug is made by John Markoff, legendary Silicon Valley journalist.

Doug's vision fits well together with the concept of innovation journalism. Doug addresses this in his talk, noting that innovation journalism can be the "perceptory system" of the collective intelligence.
