Times plugs Stanford new work in drama, with tech history theme

John Markoff The New York Times tech writer today has a preview of a new theatrical work at Stanford, “The Demo” about Douglas Engelbart’s famous demonstration in 1968 of what is now ubiquitous, the use of a “mouse” to control a personal computer (although oddly the computer I’m using, a spiffy and lean MacPro has no mouse: I drag a finger across a pad near by palms)

There’s only two shows, April 1 and 2 and I might go, but it will probably sell out. Kinda reminds of Rush Rehm as Reagan at Rekyavick.
